Official description

To celebrate HM Queen Sirikit's 85th birthday, Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra (RBSO) and Chulalongkorn University Concert Choir will perform the "Thai Classical Music" concert at Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road on Sunday at 7.30pm.

Vocalist Duangpon Pongphasuk will join forces with RAdm Veeraphan Vawklang, who will conduct the RBSO in a programme that features Isariya Maharachinee, a symphonic poem composed by Khunying Sasima Srivikorn as a special tribute to mark Her Majesty's 60th birthday in 1992 and Phra Mae Thai for choir and orchestra composed by Khunying Malaival Boonyaratavej.

The other main piece is Fantasia On Themes of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej as arranged by Japanese maestro Norio Maeda. When Thailand celebrated the late king's 60th birthday, the people of Thailand and Japan marked the occasion by commissioning this particular arrangement of royal compositions. The arranger chose Magic Beams, Lovelight In My Heart, Echo, Lullaby, Falling Rain, Love In Spring and HM Blues as the basis of his tribute, which he treated in the style of a fantasia.
