Expressions (Part 2)

Expressions - Moving Souls in Symphony,  a concert with fusion of orchestra & dance was successfully held on 21 September 2012 with the aid and support from the organising team, sponsors, dance clubs and of course, guest players!

No no, it's a misconception when people thought that we (TUSO) are music students.
As a matter of fact, there's no music faculty in Taylor's University while all of us are studying courses e.g. business, mass communication, pre-u, architecture, tourism and hospitality and so on.
It is not easy to gather music enthusiasts (especially orchestra players) from Taylor's to form a orchestra.
Therefore, I've personally invited a few guest players in enhancing the orchestra.
Take a glimpse into the world behind the scenes in order to acknowledge the many professionals who played indispensable roles in the successful completion of this concert and they are (names are arranged in random manner):

(from left) Faris, me, Andrew & Wei Han

Andrew Ng Wen Hao
Violin soloist of the night who plays the Carmen Fantasy
If you are a MPO/ MPYO concert go-er, you may be able to recognise him  :)
Ah yes, he is brother of James Ng, the principal cellist of MPYO.
Needless to say, be amazed by his profile (flip to page 12!) as shown in the programme booklet.
They are music prodigies!

You may often see him playing in RTM Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra (NSO), KLPac Symphonic Band, MPYO too.
Ah ha, he's one of the founding members of High Winds Ensemble from MPO and a music lecturer from UiTM.
Besides, he's a reed maker in which many local oboists are highly-sought after.
Some people are indeed, so surprised that he was playing with us in the concert!
We're honoured to have him regardless of his uber hectic schedule.

It's a blessing to be friend with all of you.
Debts are not usually very pleasant, but I am delighted to acknowledge all that I owe to all of you.
