Following the success of their concert held in May, the Klassikal Music Foundation (KMF) scholars will be having a repeat of the show on October 15, 2016, 7:30PM, at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater) of the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City.
Entitled “Songs from a Silver World: The Encore Performance,” the showcase will feature the scholars and their singing prowess as they perform renditions of popular songs used in films.
KMF was established by McDonald’s Philippines Founder and Chairman Dr. George T. Yang. The foundation aids deserving students in need of training and financial support to continue their study of classical music. Since 2007, the foundation has supported close to 60 scholars, carefully selected from the country’s best musical talents.
Last May, 22 scholars, including Asia’s Golden Girl, Gerphil Flores, held a full-house show at the RCBC Plaza that earned positive reviews from guests. The repertoire included music from thrillers, James Bond movies, Italian Cinema, Disney, Oscar-winning songs, and other iconic tunes from the silver screen.
“Songs from a Silver World: The Encore Performance” will be directed by Andrew Fernando, with musical direction from Herminigildo Ranera, choreography from Richardson Yadao and Macel Dofitas, and light design from John Batalla. KMF is also proud to be supported by its newest board member, Mr. Gerard Salonga. The rest of the members of the board include Dr. George T. Yang, Dr. Raul Sunico, Dr. Raul Navarro, Ms. Shirley Bangayan, Ms. Lily Monteverde, and Ms. Rachelle Gerodias.
More than just a replay of the previous concert, Artistic Director Andrew Fernando promises that the repeat show will have additional songs in the line-up that will surely delight the audience, classical music fan or not.
Proceeds of the showcase will go to the foundation to continuously support new scholars.
The event is co-presented by McDonald’s and GenOSI. Sponsors are Franke Foodservice Systems, Ecolab, RFM-Interbake Commissary Corporation, Coca-Cola, Technolux, and Foster Foods.
