THE 5th CCP National Rondalla Workshop will be held at the Cultural Center of the Philippines from Tuesday to Saturday, April 24-28, 2018 from 9:00AM to 6:00PM in various venues of the CCP. The Workshop is open to rondalla groups all over the country which have been in existence for at least two (2) years and are non-beginners, who wish to further hone their skills in rondalla technique and performance. This training program follows the highly successful CCP National Rondalla Workshops held every April since 2014.

The Workshop trainors are led by Elaine Espejo Cajucom of the Celso Espejo Rondalla and the UP Rondalla, and faculty member of the UP College of Music. The Workshop module includes sectional rehearsals per rondalla instrument, note reading sessions, individual rondalla ensemble cliniquing sessions, and plenary sessions wherein all the participants gather together to learn a common piece.

The Workshop will culminate in a program at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater) on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 4:00 PM.

The annual CCP National Rondalla Workshop is now recognized for having trained rondalla ensembles and banduria players who became national finalists and have won top prizes in the solo banduria and the rondalla ensemble competitions of the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA).
