Dennis Lau & Friends: The Chosen 2019 Concert
Following Dennis Lau’s maiden concert in 2016 (Dennis Lau & Friends: The Phoenix Rising), Malaysian violinist Dennis Lau is bringing together an ensemble of multi-genre Malaysian artistes for the next chapter of Dennis Lau & Friends. Themed ‘THE CHOSEN’, the full-scale mega concert by the multi-award winning violinist will be show produced by Jennifer Thompson and musically directed by Aubrey Suwito – whose names are synonymous with the highest quality international shows.
THE CHOSEN by Dennis Lau & Friends Concert which will be held on 29th June 2019 at Mega Star Arena @ Viva Mall and will feature rising stars namely Aisyah Aziz, Jeryl Lee, Dewi Seriestha, Lee Elaine, Jimmy Sax, Dennis Yin, NAMA and Fara Dolhadi. A mystery guest artiste who will be announced soon is also expected to make an appearance.
THE CHOSEN was selected as the theme for this concert to represent the beginning of Dennis Lau’s ‘Give Back’ movement in collaboration with Teach For Malaysia. It is a representation of a musically and spiritually mature Dennis, who aims to transport his audience to a limitless world of opportunities, love, peace and equality. The ‘Give Back’ movement includes a masterclass and mentorship programme for selected students through Teach For Malaysia.
Dennis Lau’s journey towards becoming an accomplished musician was birthed from a humble circumstance of academic failure and a mother’s persevering love. “My mother taught me the piano from the age of 3, and at the age of 7 I picked up the violin. I am where I am today because I had people who believed in me, who encouraged me and who provided me with opportunities. 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 (TFM) 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. And we are delighted to go on a musical journey with the students who have been ‘chosen’ – to inspire and provide them with the platform to discover their musical talents.”
Dzameer Dzulkifli, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Teach For Malaysia said, “Teach For Malaysia believes in giving all children the opportunity to attain an excellent education, so that they can live lives they truly love. We are grateful for partners like Dennis Lau who share 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 TFM teachers 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 TFM will be performing a song especially composed by Dennis for them, titled ‘Esok’ on 29 June 2019. A portion of ticket proceeds from the concert will go to Teach For Malaysia to support its mission to end education inequity.
