They say music heals. 


In that connection, I'd like to call the attention of those people with broken hearts. Please listen to the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra's album. It can do wonders to your well-being. 

Several years ago, I wrote about the schedule of free public performances by the Philharmonic Orchestra. Boy, was I grateful when a mom reader told me that because of that free concert her son decided to take musical instrument lessons. That encounter made me #happy and sad at the same time. Weird eh? Yes, I wrote about their performances schedule but I was not able to watch the Philharmonic Orchestra's live performances at that time. Sigh, I thought I lost my chance forever.

Then the other night, after two long years,  I finally heard with my ears and saw with my own two-eyes the amazing 42-piece orchestra headed by musical director and conductor Gerard Salonga in a wonderful night of music at Dolphy theatre at ABS-CBN compound.  It was the official presscon for the orchestra's debut album: #DecadesofOPM!

I was blown away by their OPM performances. My heart was filled with joy. It was fun. The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra even had a live interaction with some of the press in attendance that night. @ABSPhilharmonic's gamely played "Whoops Kiri" under the baton of Ms. Crispina Belen, Entertainment Editor of @manila_bulletin. Good job ma'am.

Our very lucky media friends @TempoPHL's Nestor Cuartero & @PEPalerts' Allan Sancon had an opportunity to sing #MagingSinoKaMan accompanied by ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra.  Bongga! How I wish I could also sing na ang nag-aacompany ay ang ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra! Weeeeeeeeee! 

It was a fun night. Thank you to the Lopez family for making the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra a reality. I hope Mr. Jonathan and @StarRecordsPH will produce a Christmas album for the orchestra too.

Let us support our very own all Filipino musicians at the 
ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra, peeps. 

Congrats @gerardsalonga
You can buy a copy of their album at all major record stores for only P350. A very nice Christmas gift for your loved ones.
