Pathumwan Princess Hotel will join the international community in turning off all the lights and power outlets at the hotel for one hour, between 8.30pm and 9.30pm on March 23, during "60+ Earth Hour 2013".
Throughout the hour, guests will be encouraged to unplug electrical devices from sockets and participate in energy-saving activities.
And to mark Earth Hour, an exclusive "Music in the Dark Concert" will be held at Loop Italian Restaurant and Terrace on the 8th floor.
Overlooking the tropical poolside and surrounded by a cool breeze, guests can enjoy a candlelit dinner and a selection of dishes prepared without the use of electricity and experience an evening of magical entertainment performed by talented blind musicians.
Saxophonist Yongsit Yongkamol and pianist Ubolwan Paikaew, both blind, will take centre stage and delight the audience with their musical genius.
Yongsit was invited to play during an exhibition of music performed by the disabled in Asia-Pacific, in addition to winning the VSA International Young Soloists Award Programme and being invited to perform at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
Ubolwan was recently recognised as the best pianist during the International Piano Festival 2 held in Vancouver, Canada. Join this magical evening, experience music in the dark, and help save the world.
