The Phil strikes again

Catch The Phil in action as they present ‘Music from Movies and Musicals 4 (MMM4)’ from June 1-3.
The Choir of the Philharmonic Society of Malaysia (most fondly known as The Phil) is one of the country’s oldest music societies and was founded in 1958. The choir is the most active arm of the society, and over the years has produced and staged over 50 successful productions. This community choir is made up of passionate volunteers from all walks of life, with the purpose of building a community in harmony.
The choir, led by Cheryl Teh, will perform their fourth edition of Music from Movies and Musicals (MMM) with over 100 singers. The choir will be accompanied by a live band which will be lead by Nish Tham. Among the magical and memorable tunes that will be featured that night include songs from The Sound of Music, Grease, The Lion King, Les Misérables, Prince of Egypt, Shrek, and Jersey Boys.
The first MMM was performed in 1996, with MMM2 in 2003 and MMM3 took to stage in 2010.
As a community based society, apart from promoting the love of music in the community, one of The Phil’s other main objectives is to contribute to charitable organisations within the community. Over the past half century, proceeds from productions have been donated to many charitable organisations around Malaysia. This year proceeds from the production will be channeled to the Society for the Severely Mentally Handicapped, Selangor and Federal Territory (SSMH); Persatuan SLE Malaysia (PSELM); and the Light a Home Project.
Do get your tickets to watch this concert and enjoy the delightful voices of The Phil. More details on The Phil can be found at www.thephil.org.my.
