The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre Symphonic Band (klpac SB) was formed in 2009. Like the klpac Orchestra, it is a community-oriented initiative aimed at providing a platform for wind and brass musicians from various musical background, to get together, make music and perform on a regular basis. It was established to fill a gap in the local music scene where many wind and brass players who started playing during their schooling years were left with no avenue to continue after graduating. The band debuted with Friendship in Concert in 2009. Its primary goal is to promote original wind band music from the past to present, and to enrich the music community. It is currently under the leadership of Cheryl Mah.
