Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra

Biography (Wikipedia)

The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO; Malay: Orkestra Filharmonik Malaysia), founded in 1997, is the resident orchestra of the Petronas Philharmonic Hall (Dewan Filharmonik Petronas) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its orchestra members are made up of musicians from over 20 countries.

Although the orchestra's mission is dedicated mainly to the performance of classical music, its versatile repertoire includes music from all genres, including pop, jazz, folk music and rock.

The patron of the MPO is Tun Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali, wife of the current Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahathir bin Mohamad, who was also prime minister when the orchestra was founded in 1997. The orchestra is funded primarily through Petronas, a Malaysian oil and gas company.
