BANGKOK Governor Chadchart Sittipunt and his team kicked off the “Music in the Garden for Happiness and Hope” event organised by Ajarn Sukree Charoensuk Foundation at Wachira Benchathat Park or Suan Rot Fai this evening (June 4) to the merriment of all participants, TV Channel 7 said.
Chadchart got up and joined a circle of dancers at this festive event where four bands played from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. with these being Kasetsart Wind Symphony, Thailand Brass Quintet, Bangkok Woodwinds Quintet and the Thailand Symphony Brass Quintet,
The governor said even though the capital only has 94 million baht budget left it would not be a problem if everyone worked together and listened to music with this activity meant to give the people of Bangkok hope.
Those who missed today’s free music in the park can join tomorrow’s event at the Octagon Pavilion in Lumpini Park where jazz/swing band The Stumbling Swingout with DJ Kang will be playing some great music.
Participants are urged to wear their surgical or cloth face masks and maintain social distance while keeping the park clean.
Chadchart said this activity is among his 214 policies for Bangkok intended to turn the metropolis into a centre of music and performing arts so that everyone has options in outdoor activities including space to play music and stage performances.
“I believe that Bangkok is a city of hope. There are so many good things that we just haven’t brought out. Good things like music in the park with not a single baht of the budget spent,” he said.
