After its historic 2016 concert at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall in New York City, the PPO is once again embarking on another milestone as it enters its 35th Concert Season (2017-2018), which coincides with the orchestra’s 45th Anniversary.

Hailed by music critics as “vigorous, totally focused, fiery conductor who infused the almost 80-member PPO with his vitality and energy,” Music Director and Principal Conductor Maestro Yoshikazu Fukumura continues the excellent classical tradition with an exciting program and an outstanding roster of international guest soloists and renowned Filipino artists. Among the featured performers are Yury Shadrin, Raul Sunico and Ingrid Santamaria (piano), Ray Wang (cello), Tots Tolentino (saxophone), Gerard Salonga and Stefano Tsialis (conductors), Eduardo Fernandez (guitar), Raymond de Leon (trumpet), and Ricson Poonin (trombone). 

From the wide-ranging gamut of orchestral gems to an extraordinary spectrum of soloists, the new concert season, billed as “Romancing the Classics” this season promises a delightful and uplifting classical music experience.
