MPYO History.
A youth orchestra associated with the activities of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) was part of the late Tan Sri Azizan’s original vision.

After 8 years of music making by the MPO together with a myriad of education projects through Encounter as a foundation, the MPYO advertised its audition tour and 500 musicians across 7 cities including, Penang, Ipoh, KL, Kuantan, Johor, Kuching and KK were eventually narrowed down to 110 founding members of the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (MPYO) who, since October 2006, have been preparing for their debut concert at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas in Kuala Lumpur in August 2007 with MPO Associate Conductor, Kevin Field as their Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor.

MPYO Aims:
The MPYO aims are varied and manifold; to nurture and encourage young musicians in their passion and appreciation of all genres of symphonic music; to support Malaysia in the provision of well-trained professional and amateur musicians, inspiring well informed audiences and teachers alike and; to nurture aspiring Malaysian composers and conductors and provide valuable work experience for individuals interested in all aspects of arts and events management.

MPYO Future:
Each section of the MPYO receives professional coaching from the musicians of the members of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and each member also has the opportunity to participate in chamber music ensembles as well as conducting workshops.

MPYO is the stage for young talent and from 2008 that talent will meet at four annual music camps nationally each year performing a variety of music from seminal classics through to the performance of new music, receive master-classes from and perform with guest artists and offer a dedicated chamber music programme.

In December 2007 the MPYO will embark on its inaugural national tour visiting Penang, Ipoh, KL, Johor Bahru and Kuantan. In 2008 the orchestra plans to tour East Malaysia.
