The society also hopes to inspire and encourage those interested in learning to play the piano by supporting budding and talented young Malaysian musicians in fulfilling their career aspirations and helping them develop an appreciation for classical as well as other kinds of music.

This concert has attracted 32 participants (28 professors and four children) from Korea; four from Hong Kong and about 100 participants from Malaysia.
