THE Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra continues to render online performances through the MUSIC FOR HEALING: PPO in Quarantine Pocket Concert Series to uplift the minds and hearts of Filipinos in the midst of the quarantine period. One of the three pocket concerts, namely, PPO IN YOUR WORKPLACE, will be streamed on September 11, 2020 at 8pm, Friday through the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Website. 

PPO IN YOUR WORKPLACE features the following pieces, among them, “A Day in the Life of a Fool (Black Orpheus)” by Luis Bonfa, to be performed by Adolfo Mendoza and Frenvee Andra (Bassoon Duet); “Araw Gabi” by Ryan Cayabyab to be played by Angelica Uson (Violin) and Glober Calambro (Trumpet); “Someone to Watch Over Me” by George Gerswhin to be rendered by Ricson Poonin (Trombone), and “Tsismis” by Ryan Cayabyab to be interpreted by the PPO Violin Section. 

The Music for Healing: PPO in Quarantine Pocket Concert Series is an ongoing program of the PPO for July and August which can be viewed from the PPO FB page and the CCP YouTube as platforms.  Initially intended as an online music offering to Filipinos who are recuperating in their beds either from hospitals or from their own homes as therapy to aid in their total healing, it also aims to accompany the whole family in coping with the pandemic situation and the frontliners who bravely provide their services to fellow countrymen in need. 

PPO in Quarantine Pocket Concert Series had its premiere on July 3, 2020, with 12 musical numbers in the playlist recorded by PPO musicians from their homes especially intended for the sick Filipinos under PPO by your Bedside program. The series offers two other programs, the PPO in the Workplace pocket concert and the PPO in your Living Room pocket concert.
