Join the Methodist Girls Secondary School Ipoh for a night of fun, frolicking and fabulous dinner featuring performances by the school band, Eximius Regiment Percussion and Guards from UiTM Perak, Ipoh Saxophones Ensemble and Ipoh Trombone Trio on Saturday, April 28.

To be held at the grand ballroom of Syeun Hotel, it aims to raise about RM40,000 to upgrade its aging musical instruments, many which are beyond repair, and fund its charitable initiative, “Taking It To The Streets”.

The MGS band is in its 54th year of existence. Besides performing for major school functions, the band has also been actively involved in Ipoh’s annual Merdeka celebrations parade. Last year, the band girls added to the festivity of the food and fun fair of the Yayasan Sultan Idris Shah in Bercham.

This year the band is practising hard to fulfil their aspirations to serve the community via “Taking It To The Streets” project which will see the girls performing at aged care homes, among others, to bring joy to the residents and obtaining a vital learning experience in return. It is a multi-faceted initiative to instil social awareness, responsibility, care and understanding within our society. Plus, the girls will learn to take on responsibilities, organise an event, take on leadership and management roles besides cultivating a sense of ownership of their band.

The evening will commence from 6.30pm with pre-dinner drinks and nibbles before moving into the grand ballroom at 7pm sharp for a sumptuous seven-course dinner.

A table of ten is priced at RM1000 while individual tickets are available for RM100 each. Donations can be made by cheque, issued to PIBG SMK (P) METHODIST IPOH with the account number: 100321116667.
