Cloudy skies mar Sunset Symphony but ensemble plays on
By Jaswinder Kaur
It was the 100-person ensemble’s second performance at the venue, playing under the setting sun as well as the rising moon. This year’s event was special, as the rising moon, also known as the Flower Moon, was believed to be at its best in 19 years.
Despite strong winds and the cloudy skies having obscured the view of the setting sun and the rising moon, the ensemble enthusiastically played classics such as "Dengarlah Sang Ombak Berdesir" from P. Ramlee's film Penarik Beca.
Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat, who is also Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, was at the venue to welcome guests – NST pix by Edmund Samunting.
