The Chiang Mai Philharmonic Band is one of three ensembles under the banner of the Foundation. Players are selected by audition from schools, colleges, and universities in and around Chiang Mai.
Conducting duties were shared by guest Daniel Pittman, and the popular Chaipruck Mekara. The trombone soloist was Norrasate Udakarn.
The exhilarating opening piece Curtain Up! by Alfred Reed set the tone for an evening of great music. The remainder of the programme consisted of
