The magical journey of musicals begins at KLPAC this April
From the dramatic and iconic tunes of Les Misérables, Chicago, and The Phantom of the Opera to the family-friendly soundtrack of Beauty and the Beast and Wicked, this is what music lovers can expect when they attend KL Pac Orchestra's latest offering- Magical Musicals. Held for only three days 7 to 9 April 2017, this is an orchestra performance not to be missed.
The smashing season opener under the baton of Lee Kok Leong will also comprise of multi-award winning singer and entertainer Tria Aziz, the charming tenor-baritone Joel Wong and trumpet virtuoso Kay Wong Sze Yen.
Always a delight to watch on stage, Tria Aziz is no stranger in the musical scene having performed since she was 12 and appeared in over 20 productions. After winning ntv7’s Audition reality TV show, she went on to bag Best Actress in SHORT+SWEET Musical 2013 and Best Musical Performer at the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards 2014. Her vocal prowess and captivating stage persona makes her a crowd favourite.
Magical Musicals also welcomes back on stage Joel Wong who teamed up with Tria in the 2016 Sudirman tribute One Thousand Million Smiles. When he is not performing with the Young KL Singers, he is a regular feature in musical productions such as Kaki Blue (2009), Songs For A New World (2012 & 2013), Marrying Me (2013), Merrily We Roll Along (2014), Larger Than Life (2014), Cabaret (2015), The Best Of Sondheim “Abridged” (2015) and "Into the Woods" (2016). He is also the man behind the lovely graphics created for The Actors Studio and The Kuala Lumpur

Kay Wong completes the exciting line up for the concert. One of the top 40 contestants for “Astro Star Quest”, Kay normally plays the trumpet with the klpac Orchestra, klpac Symphonic Band, Selangor Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonic Winds of Malaysia.
