The Lopez Museum and Library and the Orchestra of the Filipino Youth (OFY) invites you to a concert organized as a tribute to Maestro Lucio San Pedro on April 5, 2-4 pm.
OFY Quorum and their Prep Club will play songs written by San Pedro, such as “Sa Ugong ng Duyan”, “Katutubong Awitin”, and “Leron-leron Sinta”. Guests to the event will also be able to view the museum’s latest exhibition, Complicated.
Lucio San Pedro, a prolific artist with more than 60 years of artistic creation, is noted for his works that are highly evocative of the folk elements. Through his compositions, he strove to reflect the Filipino soul and stayed true to his musical philosophy of “creative nationalism.” He has written hymns, masses, choral works, songs for solo voices, chamber music, incidental music, even background music for movies. Conferred National Artist for Music in 1991, his popular compositions include “Sa Mahal Kong Bayan”, “Simbanggabi”, and “Sa Ugoy ng Duyan”.
OFY is a joint venture between ABS CBN Corporation and First Philippine Holdings. Ang Misyon established OFY along with its after-school music education program, Sistema for the Filipino Youth, which offers children from deprived communities the opportunity to achieve their full musical potential through music lessons, with the ultimate hope of creating a positive impact on their communities.
The Lopez Museum’s latest exhibition, Complicated, explores at the complex relationship of the Philippines with its colonial pasts. It features commissioned works by guest artists Leslie de Chavez, Mike Adrao, and Ea Torrado juxtaposed with works by Juan Luna, Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, Juvenal Sanso, and other artworks from the collection.
Concert ticket costs Php 500 (Php 450.00 for students and museum members) and includes admission to the museum. For more information and ticket reservation, contact Tina Modrigo at 631-2417 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
