The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra plays the Happiest Music On Earth
Disney fans of different ages came together last weekend (11.8-9.2014) at the Culural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo to relive childhood memories and sing-along with the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra’s major concert Tale As Old As Time. Under the baton of Gerard Salonga, the ABSPO performed classic as well new favorites from Disney’s roster of animated films, from the sweet score of Cinderella to the sweeping anthems of Frozen. Maestro Gerard explained that they obtained the rights to stage the concert which Disney has a touring package for including American vocalists. But with an abundance of talent in the country, ABS-CBN opted to employ local talents instead to breathe life to the music of Disney. Lending their voices to the concert is a mix of delightful pop artists, seasoned theater performers and impressive newcomers, ably accompanied by the powerful ensemble Vocal Synergy. Karylle, Sam Concepcion and Morissette lead the company in performing songs from The Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast and Mulan. Stage thespians Carla Guevarra-Laforteza, Red Concepcion and Caisa Borromeo in turn gave color to characters such as Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Rapunzel from Tangled and Olaf from Frozen. But undeniably, showstopping performances came from discoveries such as Antonio Ferrer who belted out “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin and the adorable Julia concio who melted the audience’s heart with “Do You Want To Build A Snowman” also from Frozen. And the concert would not have been complete without Bituin Escalante’s standout performance of “Circle of Life” from The Lion King. Photo credits: Eric Bolante
