SUNSET SONATA by The Sea at The Broadwalk of Oceanus Waterfront Mall on 19th Dec 2015

Oceanus Waterfront Mall together with Eastern College Kota Kinabalu are proud to present the “Sunset Sonata by the Sea” event to be held on 19th December 2015 at 4pm. This 2-hour orchestral music performance, is a charity collaboration between the two establishments, in aid of Tolumis Care Centre based in Tuaran.

Mr. Victor Ng, the General Manager of Oceanus Waterfront Mall, mooted the idea upon witnessing the Eastern College string ensemble performed during an event in October this year. He believes that this group of talented musicians should be given a platform to showcase their musical talents. Boasted as the best venue to view the sunset in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, the event will be held at the Boardwalk of Oceanus Waterfront Mall to create awareness on the availability of an outdoor event space right in the heart of the city adjoining the South China Sea. This is in fact, how the event acquired its title “Sunset Sonata by the Sea”.



The KKCW Boardwalk is slated as a world class development on par with the best boardwalks and lifestyle centers in the world. It is envisioned to offer a new and vibrant urban street-space atmosphere in the heart of Kota Kinabalu. The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront is a shopping center, hotel and condominium development that combines the traditional retail functions of a shopping mall with leisure amenities catered towards upscale consumers and tourists. It is designed to be a 'unique urban village' - a vibrant place where community takes shape and public life happens.

The purpose-built 2.1km Boardwalk, stretching from Anjung Senja at one end to the Hyatt Regency at the other, will complete this star attraction. Relentless effort and resources have been channeled into the design and management of the Boardwalk to maximize crowd retention and sustain this new lifestyle-retail DNA.


Imagine, watching a jazz singer drawing an audience, serenading to passing onlookers amidst a fresh breeze overlooking a spectacular sunset. The entire boardwalk will feature an urban maze with design that decorate the whole place with restaurants and stores lining an outdoor pedestrian street.

The Diploma in Music ensemble consist of 70 members that vary in age ranging from 18 and above. The concert is coordinated by Mr. Aaron Eranza and conducted by Mr. Elvin Dainal.
