KUALA LUMPUR, 16 NOVEMBER – The young talented musicians of Young Malaysians Go Classic II (YMGCII) recently concluded their mesmerizing performance before an international audience on the 16th of November 2017 at Connexion @ Nexus Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur.

The Malaysia Belgium Luxembourg Business Council (MBLBC) together with the local Belgium Embassy organised YMGCII as a CSR-initiative to provide musicians living in Malaysia an opportunity to display their musical talents in front of an international and appreciative audience of international business-people, government officials, musical colleagues and parents.  Auditions for YMGCII were held over the course of two months and the best talents from different states in Malaysia were selected to form a full size choir and philharmonic orchestra.

“Our main goal was to provide artistic exposure to local communities and future leaders. It does not matter if we’re from various nations, with YMGC we are all people of one musical nation,” said Daniel Pans, Vice President of MBLBC and also the inspiration behind the YMGC. “It was truly an astounding performance by the young musicians. Looking around, I felt immense pride at the fact that everyone from different backgrounds were able to come together to enjoy brilliantly executed performances. There’s nothing like watching pure passion and hard-work paying off right before your eyes. It was truly inspirational”, he added.

The young musicians of YMGCII were exceptional and skilfully performed some of the most intricate set pieces such as the Les Miserables Collection, Rolling in the Deep and Guardians at the Gate just to name a few.   

YMGCII was conducted by Sir Dirk Brossé, a multi-faceted composer and a respected conductor on the international music scene from Belgium along with other accomplished talents that contributed their music skills such as Mr. Kevin Field – the long-time Principal Conductor of MPYO, Choir Leader – Mrs Susanna Saw and Composer – Mr Ken Hor.

This was the second time that the MBLBC has collaborated with the Belgian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur for YMGC, after its extremely successful inaugural back in 2013.  The evening was held in conjunction with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Belgium – Malaysia Bilateral Relations, as well as to celebrate Belgium’s King’s Day in Kuala Lumpur. The talented youths of YMGC will also be the main attraction and entertainment for the EU-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EUMCCI) organized EUROPA Awards, happening on the 24th of November 2017.

Platinum sponsor of the event, Bigbox Asia, is an e-commerce grocer powered by specialised food distribution company, DPO International.
