The audience at Ceylon Club hall was enchanted by 30 smooth orchestral instruments played by the Kinta Valley Orchestra Club. The occasion was the Ipoh Fine Arts Society (IFAS) night.
The ensemble is presently the only community orchestral group in Ipoh. It performed a medley which included several chart-stoppers such as “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele, “Beat It” by Michael Jackson and the crowd’s favourite, “Hawaii Five-O”, the soundtrack from the much-loved television series of the same name.
Soon after the musical treat, the audience was mesmerised by some animated Bharatanatyam dance routines performed by dancers from the Nithya Dancing School. The show lasted for almost an hour.
Mrs Shanti Kumar, a representative from IFAS was glad that the event was a success. “We’ll definitely have more of this in the future, as the response is remarkable,” she told Ipoh Echo when met.
The winner and runners-up of IFAS Emerging Young Artist 2015 creatively displayed their interpretation of the earth through classical fusion dances.
