A Mega Concert Aiming To End Inequality In Education
Promoting Limitless Opportunities, Love, Peace And Equality With Teach For Malaysia
Following his hugely successful concert in 2016 (Dennis Lau & Friends: The Phoenix Rising), music maestro Dennis Lau is back alongside an ensemble of talented Malaysian artistes for ‘The Chosen 2019 Concert’! What’s more, the coming concert is produced by the renowned Jennifer Thompson and musically directed by Aubrey Suwito. It will also include performances by rising stars Aisyah Aziz, Jeryl Lee, Dewi Seriestha, Lee Elaine, Jimmy Sax, Dennis Yin, NAMA and Fara Dolhadi.
‘The Chosen’ marks the beginning of Dennis Lau’s ‘Give Back’ movement in collaboration with Teach For Malaysia. The ‘Give Back’ movement includes a masterclass and mentorship programme for selected students through Teach For Malaysia. It aims to give every child an equal opportunity to attain an excellent education. Dennis Lau also added, “I have made my mark in the industry and I feel strongly that it is now time for me to give back through providing opportunities in music. My collaboration with Teach For Malaysia enables me to do just that - empowering deserving children with the opportunities to pursue music. This concert is called ‘The Chosen’ because we are all chosen for a specific purpose in our lives, to contribute for the greater good.”
Dzameer Dzulkifli, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Teach For Malaysia also added that, “We are grateful for partners like Dennis Lau who shares the same dream: To provide opportunities and platforms for students to realise their full potential. Over the last 6 months, Dennis and Fara (Dolhadi) have mentored 4 students of Teach For Malaysia in vocal training, teaching them what it takes to be a performing artiste. This life-changing opportunity has stirred up their ambitions and empowered them to pursue music as a future career. Our students are honoured to be selected to perform the song that Dennis composed for them during ‘The Chosen’ concert.” The four students from Teach For Malaysia will be performing a song specifically composed for them by Dennis, entitled ‘Esok’.
A portion of the ticket proceeds from the concert will go to Teach For Malaysia to support its mission to end education inequity. ‘The Chosen 2019 Concert’ by Dennis Lau and friends will be held on 29th June 2019 at Mega Star Arena @ Viva Mall. Get your tickets now at TicketCharge.
