The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) through its Cultural Exchange Department and the Tribung Pilipino Foundation (TPF) brings HARANA to selected local communities in Luzon for a series of outreach concerts from May to November 2016.

Billed as Lakbay Harana, the outreach tour is an offshoot of a series of well attended concerts held last year at the Bulwagang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater Lobby) entitled Harana sa Dapit Hapon which was also jointly undertaken by the CCP and the Tribung Pilipino Foundation (TPF). Lakbay Harana aims to promote and reawaken the public’s interest and appreciation (especially the young generation) for immortal kundimans, harana, balitaw, danza and unforgettable love songs by great Filipino composers. Noted classical singers and performers will be featured in the outreach tour to include Myramae Meneses (soprano), Arman Ferrer (tenor), Agot Espino (pianist) with special participation of the Kabataang Gitarista.

The first concert of Lakbay Harana will be held on May 18, 4:00pm at the historic Church of Pila in Laguna through the partnership of the Shrine of San Antonio de Padua community.  The Pila concert will kick off the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Diocese of San Pablo this year.  The next sites include Lipa City-Batangas on July 22, Vigan City-Ilocos Sur in September and Baler-Aurora in November.
