Malaysia World Band Competition 2009 – Street Parade KLCC

12.17.2009 · Posted in Event, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

That particular  Wednesday I was at Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC) area, on that day the Malaysia World Band Competition  (MWBC) 2009 was organising it Street Parade Show at KLCC. That noon, there was a massive jam surrounding KLCC area.

For more information you can refer to the organiser website http://www.mwbc.my/


Anyway I was in KLCC until evening, so I waited for the MWBC Street Parade Show. It started around 8.30pm on Jalan Ampang in front of the KLCC Twin Tower. Before that you’ll be able to see some of the bands are practicing their tune nearby.


The Malaysia World Band Competition 2009 Street Show started with the Australia team, followed by Malaysia team which consist of UITM Dungun & UITM Jengka, then the St John Institution Alumni Band and the last band I watched before leaving the place was the St Xavier Band. According to one of the crew in MWMBC there are also teams from South Africa, Indonesia, Thailand and a few other which I cant remember.

It was drizzling when the competition was about to start. Rain was heavily pouring down when Australian & Malaysia team performed. Basically the first few bands was actually performing in the rain.

I did not know such event will be held in KLCC, so as a result, all photo shown above are actually from my N73 camera phone. Which is not bad, but lacking of the zooming capability.

Earlier this was post as Kuala Lumpur World Marching Band Competition 2009 – Preliminary Show Round-1 at KLCC, it should be about Malaysia World Band Competition 2009 – Street Parade KLCC.  I never thought two such similar event are held in Malaysia on the same week.

  1. Kindly change the tittle of the post above. The one in the post is MWBC.

    Its totally different than Kuala Lumpur World Marching Band. KLWMBC is sanctioned by the World Associations of Marching Show Bands and supported by the government of Malaysia (Ministy of Tourism, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Federal Territory).

    For more info, kindly call 013-2031279.
