PENANG INCLUSION ORCHESTRA

Music is an international language with no barriers but infinite repertoires. The wide application of music from medical to pleasure listening opens doors to unlimited opportunities for any person to use as it best fits. Thus, people with special needs should get the chance to learn and master music, be it for self-entertainment or to make a career.

In our country, there is a lack of awareness in talent scouting for music appreciation among the people with special needs. There are no teachers trained to teach music, for example, the theory of music to those without sight. Owing to such, the many gifted ones, have no opportunity to groom and maximize their ability.

In the performance you will see tonight, people with special needs and their “normal” peers will come together to entertain you in groups and individually. This is the expectation we hope to achieve, not in short term but as a long terms commitment towards the inclusion concept of Malaysian society. The trust that we all share allows us to break new grounds in the area of fostering better programs and bigger partnerships for the benefit of the people with special needs.

May I therefore, take this opportunity to urge you, not just to be a participant in this concert but be our partner to promote the inclusion concept in our Malaysian society. Let’s create the opportunities to boost the coming of a brighter tomorrow for the people with special needs in Malaysia.

  1. The Penang Inclusion Orchestra (PIO) is a newly formed orchestral group consisting of a group of music lovers of all ages and races and special needs children. The performers of this group play all kinds of musical instruments, western and cultural.
  2. The main mission of PIO is to strive to help the Blind and the Handicapped to learn music, and stage performances with a view to help and create job opportunities for them through music.
  3. The second mission is to help fulfill the objective of ONE Malaysia concept by forming an orchestral group consisting players of all ages and races playing various musical instruments.
  4. PIO has fully qualified and professional tutors who teach and give guidance on up-to-date musical instruments to assist the players.
  5. The first concert of PIO was held on 18 April 2010, Sunday at the Dewan Sri Pinang.
