DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS (DFP) is Malaysia’s pride and joy and a cultural icon for music lovers the world over.
Home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO), DFP’s magnificent architectural design and superior acoustics combined with its location within the business and leisure hub of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) make the hall a “must-visit” destination for travelers and Malaysians alike.
The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) has performed with many world renowned conductors and artists including Lorin Maazel, Sir Neville Marriner, Yehudi Menuhin, Nigel Kennedy, Joshua Bell, Harry Connick Jr and Andrea Bocelli, most of whom have praised the MPO for its fine musical qualities and vitality.
With each new season, the MPO continues to present a varied programme of orchestral music drawn from over three centuries, as well as the crowd-pleasing Specials, Pops and Family Fun Day series. The MPO celebrated its 17th Anniversary this 17 August 2015 and remains steadfast in its mission to share the depth, power and beauty of great music.
