THROUGH the past 19 Toyota Classics concerts, the Bruneian community has helped NBT (Brunei) Sdn Bhd raise a total of B$1,596,190 for the special needs people in the country.
This year is no exception as the popular Toyota Classics celebrates its 25th year in the Asian region. NBT is gearing up for its 20th year of hosting it in Brunei at 8pm on November 8 at the Arts Centre, Jerudong International School.
Similar to previous years, the remarkably enduring charity concert series will again be donating the entire ticket sales proceeds to deserving charities in Brunei.
Co-sponsors, Toyota Motor Asia Pacific (TMAP) and NBT (Brunei) have over the years expended hundreds of thousands of dollars in organisational and logistical costs to stage all 20 concerts to date.
Thanks to their generous and untiring efforts, patrons will be able to enjoy the performance of yet another world-class concert.
This year, the concert will feature the Covent Garden Soloists Orchestra under the capable baton of well-known conductor, Miguel Angel Navarro.
The widely-acclaimed soloist duo, Pamela and Vasko, are also part of the group.
The orchestra’s repertoire featuring ‘Cinema Concertos’, promises to be refreshingly different by featuring movie theme songs from popular westerns and modern-day blockbusters specially arranged by Singapore born Pamela Tan-Nicholson.
The evening will feature popular numbers from movies that include The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, For a Few Dollars More, The Magnificent Seven, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Godfather, The Italian Job, Mission Impossible, Gladiator, Once Upon a Time in the West, Love Story, Gone with the Wind and local favourites, Adai-Adai & Kampong Ayer.
Tickets priced at B$150 and B$100 have already been sold out. Currently, there are only limited seats for B$80 tickets which can be purchased at Toyota and Lexus showrooms.
