Rustan’s, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and
The Philippine Italian Association, in cooperation with
The Peninsula Manila, Lexus and L’Opera Ristorante Italiano,
are proud to present a concert that highlights world-class Filipino talent with “Cecile Licad Chopin in the Key of C.” (or in the key of "Do", in Italian)
To be held on October 27, 2017, Friday at 8:00 PM at the CCP Main Theater, the concert will feature the timeless classics: Chopin’s Concerto No.1 in E Minor ("MI minore") and Chopin’s Concerto No. 2 in F Minor ("FA minore") which will be brought to life through the impressive musicality of multi-awarded classical pianist Cecile Licad.
The PPO will play Genoveva’s Overture as opening number under the baton of Olivier Ochanine.
Licad, who became one of the youngest musicians to receive the prestigious Leventritt Gold Medal at 19 years old, discovered her passion for music at the age of three and found a mentor in Rosario Picazo. At seven years old, she debuted as a soloist with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.
Cecile Licad reunites with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of former Music Director and Principal Conductor, Olivier Ochanine, who will lend a dramatic backdrop to her moving notes.
Proceeds from the concert will all go to the San Pablo Apostol Parish Church in Tondo, Manila under the stewardship of an Italian priest, Fr. Carlo Bittante of the Canossian Sons of Charity, one of the three Italian Missionary-run charities supported by the Philippine Italian Association.
Tickets are available at P5,000, P3,000, P1,000, and P500.
