Young international ensemble in a beautiful hall

A magnificent hall and a good young (as in age) orchestra. Tickets prices are ridiculously cheap for the quality - does require a dress standard though (no jeans allowed)

The MPO is situated at the KLCC, another tourist attraction in KL. In addition to MPO's own concerts, it also host leading artists and orchestras from abroad. Music played is not limited to classical but also jazz, hip hop, and occasionally music for kids.

We have subscribed to the orchestra since the time we arrived in Kuala Lumpur, the concert hall is one of the most intimate and beautiful I have ever had the pleasure to sit in. It is located at the base of one of the Twin Towers.
