DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS (DFP) is home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) and is Malaysia’s concert hall devoted specifically to classical music. Located in the PETRONAS Twin Towers, it was officially opened on 17th August 1998 by the patron of the MPO, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Haji Mohd Ali and former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

The hall seats 920 people at one time, which includes box seats, corporate suites and a royal suite. Acoustics experts Kirkegaard and Associates have incorporated unique acoustical devices into the design to maximize the hall’s natural qualities.
