The Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research, and Innovation (MHESI) has a policy for educational institutions to utilize their musical capabilities and performances to honor His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Great, under the theme ‘Music in the Garden: H.M. Song, MHESI playing the King’s Music.’ This initiative aims to commemorate and honor the grace of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Great, on December 5, 2023, coinciding with the auspicious occasion of his birth anniversary.

The Center for Academic Services (CAS) of Walailak University, in its role as the MHESI Front Office of Krabi Province, organized a musical event at the Sculpture of a sailfish at Ao Nang beach, Krabi. The purpose of organizing this event is to collectively pay homage and reflect on the royal benevolence of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Great, who has greatly contributed to the well-being of the Thai people. His contributions extend beyond education, science, research, and innovation; he is also an accomplished artist with a profound ability to create music. Additionally, he is the royal patron of music, promoting both Thai and international music and showing great royal benevolence to musicians of all kinds.

The musical talent of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Great, has been widely acknowledged by the Thai people for a long time, especially through the numerous royal compositions, totaling up to 49 songs. This serves as a strong affirmation of His Majesty’s musical prowess.
