Syarifah Alawiyyah, a second year MBBS student, and one of several performers, had the audience spellbound from the start with her talent on the saxophone. The 22-year-old Syarifah who hails from Johor, says the boredom of playing the piano when she was nine-year-old led to her switching to a different musical instrument.
“It is not always we see people playing the saxophone and I decided to do something different. There is so much of joy in it,” added Syarifah, who scored straight 9A’ in her Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination. “I am glad the audience enjoyed my performance.”
