Classical music fans were treated to a night of world-class talent with the Klassikal Music Foundation’s (KMF) “Songs from a Silver World: The Encore Performance” held recently at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The concert was a rerun of the successful showcase held earlier this year.
KMF scholars sang classical renditions of music from James Bond movies, Italian cinema, Disney, Oscar- winning songs.
The show was directed by Andrew Fernando, with musical direction by Herminigildo Ranera, choreography by Richardson Yadao and Macel Dofitas, and light design by John Batalla.
A highlight was the performance of Asia’s Golden Girl, Gerphil Flores. Guests were especially delighted with her version of “The Impossible Dream.”
Established by McDonald’s founder and chair Dr. George T. Yang in 2007, KMF has supported close to 60 scholars.
Gerard Salonga has joined its board, joining Yang, Raul Sunico, Raul Navarro, Lily Monteverde and Rachelle Gerodias.
