Prague Chamber Orchestra to perform at Toyota Classics 2009

by -

At Autoworld, we are not quite versed in matters of artistic pursuits (except when applied to automotive design). However, we do know how to appreciate a good cause, which is what the Toyota Classics 2009 concert is all about. The 2009 edition of this annual event, set to take place at the Auditorium Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam on Friday, 23 October, will serve to raise funds for three charity organizations, namely the Agathians Shelter, National Autism Society of Malaysia and Tasputra Perkim.

For this year, organizers UMW Toyota Motor will be bringing in the services of the supposedly renowned Prague Chamber Orchestra. We didn’t know for sure who they were, but with the help of Google, we discovered that they are indeed an orchestra of great stature. Their stop in Malaysia is part of a regional tour taking them to six countries in the space of 19 days. On stage, they will be joined on stage by conductor Charles Olivieri-Munroe and Soprano Marie Fajtova.
