The Philippine Chamber Singers - Los Angeles - "I Will Sing Forever" - 10th Year Anniversary Concert

Music Centers Walt Disney Concert Hall

111 South Grand Ave., Los Angeles, 90012

7:30pm

The Philippine Chamber Singers – Los Angeles (PCS-LA) is proud to present “I Will Sing Forever”— a special 10th year anniversary celebration at The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, August 16th.

After serving the Los Angeles community for the last 10 years with its cultural and musical needs, Artistic Director Gelo Francisco and PCS-LA are truly blessed with the opportunity to make history as the first Filipino choral group to perform solo at The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall. As always, PCS-LA will highlight the Filipinos’ rich heritage through choral and orchestral, traditional and avant-garde choral pieces. And for once, the works of notable Filipino composers including Father Manoling Francisco, S.J.; Ryan Cayabyab; Ruben Federizon; Fabian Obispo; and Robin Estrada to name a few, will be featured on this very prestigious stage.

Very special friends will join in the celebration. Hear the tender voices of Immaculate Heart of Mary Children’s Choir led by their founder and artistic director, Christopher Avendaño, ethnic sounds from the Kulintang by Asuncion Ojeda, mash-ups with guitarist extraordinaire Perfecto de Castro from the 90s Pinoy Rock supergroup Rivermaya. Together, musical styles will be infused into a treat for the whole family to enjoy.

Tickets available through TicketMaster or at The Walt Disney Concert Hall box office windows. For more information visit www.pcsla.org or https://www.facebook.com/PCSLA .
