Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra Set to Perform at Carnegie Hall

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

It's so nice to see our country do so good in the arts, and this is another one. The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra is going to have a groundbreaking performance at the famous Carnegie Hall in the US with thanks to sponsors Philippine Airlines, Smart Infinity, Rustan's, One Meralco Foundation, PLDT, SMART, Federal Land and Metrobank  Card. 

"When I talked to MVP he said "I want to help PPO" so I came in sweating, nervous, but I believed in the project. This isn't just for PPO but for the Philippines. 6 years later, I'm so happy that is happening. TV5 is also documenting this, we're going to have a beautiful documentary of a historic tour. This is gonna be the pride of the Philippines. He asked me "How much would we need to make this happen?", it was very easy though. I think our dear media friends have been wonderful to bring this news to the Filipino people and they have been instrumental to have this be easy. We have two big acts, one by Diomedes Saraza (who graduated in Julliard) and Ms. Cecile Licad who are world class musicians. Aside from Carnegie, we'll have a few concerts too outside for charity but we're still finalizing that. Ticket prices would be around 25-120$US and Carnegie hall is expensive, we pay for history and the prestige so I'm excited to do this! I think I have done quite a lot on my list, not all but a lot. The one I'm also leaving this too is a good man, he's really good. This is my time to turn the page." says Olivier Ochanine the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra's Conductor.

Thanks to Smart Infinity, Smart Communications, the MVP group and their other sponsors, this dream of taking a world class Filipino orchestra is now a reality. All we need to do now is see them off and be proud that we now have marked that territory where tons of world class performers, musicians, playwrights and actors have also performed. We are there, and we'll surely make it anywhere. For tickets to the show, please monitor the availability online at or just look at their calendar here. Hurry before their tickets run out!
