Malaysian British Society (MBS)

12th June 2010

The British Malaysia Society in association with Lord’s Taverners (Malaysia) was proud to arrange a series of recitals by Bobby Chen in Malaysia, June 2010, in aid of charity.

'Although he has played here on various occasions, we believe that his talent is not given the recognition it richly deserves.  It is hoped that, through these occasions, Bobby will strengthen his links with his Malaysian roots and achieve his dream of establishing his own Music Academy, with the support of his alma mater, the Yehudi Menuhin School in the United Kingdom, to nurture young Malaysian musical talents and to share his experience, knowledge and skills with young Malaysian music prodigies.'
