Yamaha Electone Concours & Festival 2008

29 June 2008 @ Plenary Theatre, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

Thanks to PuiYee, I went to KLCC again to watch talented young kids and teenagers perform their own song/arrangement on Electone. This is the National Finals of Yamaha Electone Concours and Festival 2008!

Besides me and PuiYee, another primary classmate of mine, PengThian was there too. PuiYee also invited her online buddy, ShenHui to join the fun. Lucky me to have three girls accompanying me to watch the performances. =P

All the finalists are aged as young as 8 to 22. And they are all exceptionally talented, composing their own songs and rearranged some famous pieces from Mozart and Andoh. My jaws dropped when I watch them play.
