The "Gold Stars Reaching for the Stars" concert invites us to soar to new heights, inspired by the timeless wisdom of Tahir Shah: "To succeed, you must reach for the stars, and let your imagination find its own path." This profound message resonates deeply as we embark on a musical journey filled with aspirations and ambitions. It urges us to aim high, to pursue excellence with unwavering determination, and to set our sights on the boundless possibilities that await us.

In this concert, we celebrate the relentless pursuit of greatness—the undying passion and unwavering commitment that drive us to outperform ourselves and surpass our own expectations. It is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, reminding us that mediocrity is not our destiny, but rather a mere obstacle to overcome on our path to greatness. Each of us is born with unique talents and abilities, and it is our responsibility to cultivate them and let them shine brightly.

The performers featured in this concert are the First Prize Winners from the Gold Star International Music Competition Grand Finals 2024, representing the pinnacle of achievement in their respective categories. Accompanied by the illustrious klpac Orchestra, these talented musicians showcase the culmination of years of dedication and hard work. Their journey serves as an inspiration to us all, reminding us that success is not achieved overnight, but through perseverance, resilience, and an unwavering belief in ourselves.

Musicians are often regarded as artists—individuals with unique personalities, a craving for freedom and self-expression, and a hint of rebelliousness running through their blood. However, in concerto performances, you witness the beauty of more than 60 talented, top-notch musicians working harmoniously together to create magical music and moments. If this is not a representation of the highest level of collaboration and co-creation, what else is? In these concerto performances, egos are set aside, and the focus shifts to the creation of artistry and connection above all else.

As we bask in the brilliance of their performances, let us be reminded of the power of dreams and the importance of reaching for the stars. For it is only by daring to dream big and daring to pursue our passions with all our hearts that we can truly achieve greatness. So let us set our sights high, strive for success, and never lose sight of the stars that guide us on our journey.

The Gold Star International Music Competition, a premier event originating from Malaysia, has set the standard for excellence in the global music arena. As the inaugural Malaysia-born international music competition, it has led the way in organizing live preliminary rounds across multiple countries and introducing categories such as piano and violin concerto, offering winners the unique opportunity to perform with a live orchestra.

Driven by a vision of worldwide recognition, the competition aims to firmly establish itself on the international platform, thereby enhancing Malaysia's standing in the global arts and culture scene. With a diverse range of categories including Solo Piano, Solo Strings, Solo Vocal, and Ensemble, it welcomes musicians of all skill levels aged 6 to 35 to participate.

The recent edition of the Gold Star International Music Competition saw an unprecedented turnout, with over 2400 participants from across the globe. Live Preliminary Rounds were conducted in 10 countries and 15 cities, providing a platform for musicians to showcase their talents. Additionally, participants had the option to submit online video entries, further expanding the competition's reach.

Gold Award Winners from the preliminary rounds earned the opportunity to compete in the Grand Finals, where they will vie for top honours. With over 270 International Finalists hailing from 14 countries and regions, along with over 130 Malaysian Finalists, the competition promises to be a celebration of musical talent on an international scale.

Beyond accolades, the Gold Star International Music Competition aspires to be a launching pad for aspiring musicians, fostering international friendships and cultural exchange. It is a testament to the power of music in bridging cultures and creating a global community of passionate musicians. Through its commitment to excellence and inclusivity, the competition aims to inspire the next generation of musical talent and promote a shared appreciation for the arts worldwide.

ABOUT The klpac Orchestra

The notion of a community orchestra is very much in keeping with the vision of The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac), which is to foster creative excellence and develop and nurture performing arts culture in Malaysia.
Driven by the obvious need for a community orchestra to cater for the growing numbers of classically trained music students and musicians, the first auditions were held in October 2006. The klpac Orchestra’s debut concert in December 2006 was “Candlelight Christmas”, conducted by the Orchestra’s founder and klpac’s first Music Director & Resident Conductor, the late Mr. Brian Tan.
In setting up the orchestra, klpac hopes to provide enriching and engaging musical experiences for people with varying musical backgrounds, in an environment that promotes fellowship and respect. The founding of The klpac Orchestra provides more opportunities for aspiring musicians, amateur or professional, while helping to promote orchestral music.
Since then, hundreds of musicians have been a part of The klpac Orchestra and its many concerts throughout the years. After the passing of Mr. Brian Tan, Dr. Takahisa took over the baton in 2012.
In 2015, Lee Kok Leong assumed the position of the orchestra’s Music Director and Resident Conductor and has since been carrying on the late Mr. Brian Tan’s legacy and dream.

Resident Music Directors:
Mr. Brian Tan (2006 – 2011)
Dr. Takahisa Ota (2012-2014)
Mr. Lee Kok Leong (2015 – Present)
