The MPO was founded towards the end of the last millennium and is one of the most recent philharmonic orchestras to have been formed. 107 musicians came together under the sponsorship of PETRONAS, mainly westerners but with a significant number of Asians including a smattering of Malaysians. Over the following 16 years more Malaysians have joined the orchestra which continues... More

Have been there for concerts on numerous occasions throughout the years. For a concert hall, it is relatively small and cosy but I think that the venue, acoustics and facilities cannot be faulted and the staff are quite professional. The resident orchestra / the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra is of world class too, with mostly foreign musicians. Very convenient as it... More

Lovely modern hall set in the base of the Petronas towers. Front row tickets were just £10 GBP. A pleasant activity when in town.

Everyone must at least go experience an orchestral performance once in their life. Although expensive (by Malaysian standards), it is an unforgettable one.

We went to the Mozart/Mendelsohn concert. I am not really an expert in classical music, but this concert did not grab me as much as other classical concerts I have been to.

How can you have such a cold venue in this climate! Even when asked to turn air con up it was Baltic. Really distracted from the performance. What a shame as it's a lovely venue.
