Ang Pag-Ibig Mo: A Philippine Love Cycle is a concert featuring a collection of well-loved Filipino songs written by some of the most prolific Filipino composers. It will be making its debut at the Nichols Concert Hall of the Music Institute of Chicago this coming August 21, 2010. This concert is more akin to a musical that tells a diptych of two people’s love stories. It explores love’s different nuances and meanings with an ending that is refreshingly different. The concert repertoire blends both the timeless kundimans (Filipino serenade) of Abelardo and Santiago, and contemporary classics by Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, Jesse Lucas, and Louie Ocampo, among others- all arranged in a unique combination of musical styles. The goal for this concert is not just to reach Filipinos longing to hear familiar sounds from back home, but to advocate for social change through the arts. It will benefit two of the most proactive charitable organizations in the Philippines- BANTAY BATA 163 and GAWAD KALINGA.
The concert features Mezzo Soprano Clarissa Ocampo and Baritone Andrew Fernando with special guest, CCP Artistic Director Raul Sunico on piano. The original script is written by award-winning director and playwright Floy Quintos.
Tickets are $75 (VIP with reception), $50, $25.
