DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS (DFP) is Malaysia’s pride and joy and a cultural icon for music lovers the world over. Home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO), DFP’s magnificent architectural design and superior acoustics combined with its location within the business and leisure hub of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) make the hall a “must-visit” destination for travelers and Malaysians alike.
While our core mission has always been to establish a sustainable musical culture through world class orchestral performances, we also believe music to be a powerful force to build brands and help engage corporations with their audience.
DFP’s principle donor is PETRONAS and its corporate sponsors include Mitsubishi Corporation, Mitsui & Co. Ltd, Malaysia LNG Sdn Bhd, ASTRO, MalayMail, Malaysian Reserve, Citibank, BMW, Maybank/American Express and Grand Hyatt.
Other corporate luminaries including The Star, Telekom Malaysia, ntv7, HSBC, New Straits Times, UOB, MasterCard, ExxonMobil, Khazanah, RTM and UMW Toyota have hosted numerous events at this prestigious concert hall.
DFP regularly collaborates with foreign consulates in Malaysia and have recently worked closely with the Spanish, French, Japanese, Dutch, Italian and Venezuelan embassies to present international cultural performances and shows.
The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) has performed with many world renowned conductors and artists including Lorin Maazel, Sir Neville Marriner, Yehudi Menuhin, Nigel Kennedy, Joshua Bell, Harry Connick Jr and Andrea Bocelli, most of whom have praised the MPO for its fine musical qualities and vitality.
With each new season, the MPO continues to present a varied programme of orchestral music drawn from over three centuries, as well as the crowd-pleasing Specials, Pops and Family Fun Day series. The MPO celebrated its 17th Anniversary this 17 August 2015 and remains steadfast in its mission to share the depth, power and beauty of great music.
