Manila Symphony Orchestra reveals choice of ten ‘immortal’ OPM songs in successful charity concert

Isang malaking tagumpay ang new normal virtual concert ng Manila Symphony Orchestra na naganap noong October 30, 2020. Napanood ito sa official Facebook page ng Ayala Museum na isa sa partners ng pagbubuo ng makahulugang charity project na layon magbigay ng isang taon na internet access sa bawat isang estudyanteng kabataan sa loob ng isang taon.

Naging pahulaan naman sa concert kung anu-ano ang sampung immortal OPM songs na napili ng Manila Symphony Orchestra na para sa kanila ay walang kupas at nananatiling paborito ng ating mga kababayan.

Pasok sa sampu ang mga awiting likha ng National Artist for music na si Ryan Cayabyab; OPM Legends Rey Valera, Louie Ocampo at Willy Cruz, folk singers na sina Freddie Aguilar at Florante, at ang Rock Legend na si Ely Buendia. 


Limang-Dipang Tao (1981)
Composed and arranged by Ryan Cayabyab

Si Aida, O si Lorna, O si Fe (1989)

Anak (1978)

Sana’y wala nang Wakas (1986)

Sa tulong ng Ayala Foundation at Avida, inaasahan na masusundan pa ang “The Rush Hour” concert series dahil isa itong malaking tagumpay na tumutulong sa mga kabataan na maitawid ang kanilang edukasyon sa panahon ng pandemya.
