In celebration of the Halloween season, the CCP is once again presenting Tricks and Musical Treats: A PPO Family Concert – a special production for children of all ages that features the country’s premier orchestra, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO). This annual Halloween event is a sure treat to the whole family – kids and kids at heart – as the CCP hosts a unique, colorful Halloween experience.

This interactive production starts with fun-filled pre-concert activities at 2:00 PM. A musical instruments “petting zoo” greets the children at the lobby, as members of PPO give a mini tutorial and invite them to try their hands in playing different orchestral instruments. Trick-or-treating then follows where children can fill their loot bags and baskets with books, candies, and other freebies from our generous partners. The concert is at 4:00 PM. 

Now on its fifth year, the production takes its audience to “A Voyage to the Fantasy Isle of Harmony;” an exciting musical adventure with vivid projections and an immersive program. Premiere children’s theatre actress, Ms. Liesl Batucan (Alice in Wonderland and Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Tale) provides the lively narration, while Maestro Herminigildo Ranera conducts the PPO in a selection of popular classical masterpieces made for children’s ears and other surprise numbers. There will also be guest performers to complete the Halloween experience. Children are encouraged to come in their best costumes to win prizes!
