Affectionately known as “The Phil”, The Philharmonic Society of Selangor is one of the oldest and most established music societies in Malaysia. Founded in 1958, it has gone on to forge a reputation for staging memorable productions of quality. Enshrined within its Rules and Constitution are the two pillars on which the Society was formed.
The first aim was to stage quality musical productions and to encourage the arts, drama and dancing fields, and the second is to provide aid to charitable organisations by donating the proceeds from staged productions to said entities.
As an organisation that equitably promotes the arts, the Society’s only stringent entry requirement on its members, young and old alike, is that they have a love for the arts.
The Society is managed by a Management Committee of committed music lovers who do this in a voluntary capacity.
About The Choir
The Choir is a regular community activity of The Philharmonic Society of Selangor and regularly performs at community and corporate events, in addition to producing its own shows. The unique feature about this choir is the fact that it is made up of members who volunteer their time. A true community choir, anyone regardless of race, religion, age, gender or musical experience is welcomed to join. Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings (except for public holidays) at Harmony Hall, Petaling Jaya. Orientations and Open Rehearsals are held once a year.
One of the best things about The Phil is the wide variety of musical works the Society has had the opportunity to perform. Its repertoire ranges from major classical works, contemporary works, hymns, spirituals and folk songs, to Broadway numbers, jazz, rock and roll, swing, pop, and more!
