A change of hands

Originally uploaded by mincaye.

This photo was taken at Shrooms Fusion Restaurant, KLCC (it's listed as one of Malaysia's Best Restaurants, and I cannot disagree!).

It was a special Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) Subscribers' reception/dinner cum meet the new Principal Conductor session.

Matthias Bamert, the new Swiss conductor, takes over from the orchestra's founding Dutch conductor, Kees Bakels, beginning this August with the 05/06 season.

It was a very intimate event; only about 40 subscribers were present, so Mr Bamert could go from table to table and chat with all of us. Conversations, in the deeper sense, are really nice ;-)

Seated, clockwise from the left, are: Poh Kim's mum, Poh Kim (MPO violinist), Colette, Rose (both enthusiasts since the very first season and music teachers), Matthias Bamert, Mum, me, and Daniel, a chartered marketer.

We haven't got to watch a MPO thingy, together yet. I'm game for anything if you are. The problem for us is finding the right time. :)
