CULTURE defines and enriches us as Filipinos. And now more than ever, must we try harder to understand appreciate our culture.
There is one place to be, an institution in and a beacon of Filipino culture. This is no less than the Culutral Center of the Philippines, which has prepared another outstanding performance season this 2018.
Be awed, be inspired and be there.
From productions from its resident companies (the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, Ballet Philippines, Philippine Ballet Theatre, Tanghalang Pilipino, Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group, Bayanihan Philippine National Folk Dance Company, UST Symphony Orchestra, National Music Competitions for Young Artists, and the Philippine Madrigal Singers) to film festivals, art exhibits, collaborations and celebrations, here are 18 things you should not miss!
Marking its 49th anniversary, the CCP will have a year of celebrations.
The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, the center's resident orchestra company, will celebrate its 45th anniversary with a concert featuring classical masterpieces under the baton of its music director Yoshikazu Fukumura, as well as outreach concerts and performances all over the Philippines.
Both the Saturday Group and Philippine Arts Educators will celebrate their 50th anniversary with respective exhibits this coming March. In May, the Association of Pinoy printmakers will hold an exhibition for their 50th anniversary.
