Farabi Music Education Institution (LPM Farabi) is not merely a music education institution. It is a large cohesive family that has great passion for music and wishes to share the brilliance of music with the general society. On 2 September 2007, they will enthusiastically present a beautiful gift laced with swaying harmony in the form of a concert held in Jakarta ’s Art Building (GKJ). Titled ‘A Gift of Harmony’, the concert involves the ‘children’ of the Farabi Music Education Institution ‘family’. These young individuals will be showcasing their skills through performances of classical music and also modern music with an acoustic twist.
Farabi’s pride and joy will specially perform various repertoires in different packaging. Mia Tri Utama (solo piano) dance to produce ‘Fragmen’, composed by Jaya Suprana.
