The Philippine Heritage Society Ball 2022

As a cultural collective, The Philippine Heritage Society continues to promote Filipino arts and culture and Filipino creatives, The Philippine Heritage Society Ball 2022 is set to be held on 25 July 2022, 5 PM at the Fiesta Pavilion of the Manila Hotel.

(L-R) Incumbent Committee Members: Eugene Guiyab, Ann Morales, Danda Buhain, Rose Santiago-Licup, Ruby Guiyab and Flora Urquico; Founders: Sherwin Sozon, Nathan de Leon

The glittering soiree will mesmerize its attendees from various social circles as it decorates the venue with the refinements of Old Manila society and fashions its program to a Quadrille Ball. LyrOPERA, the country’s most prominent non-stock, non-profit opera company, co-presents this event and will perform magnificent music that complements opulent Filipino decor elements like Capiz shells, Aanahaw leaves, and Sampaguita blossoms.

The event will also feature truly-Filipino and glamorous segments like a waltz dance and a fashion show. The ball’s main segment will be the awarding ceremony of the 2022 Filipino Heritage Awards.

Waltz Dance

Filipino Balse and classic love songs like Kundimans rendered in waltz arrangement will create a special air of elegance and sophistication at the Waltz Dance segment of the event. To complement the nostalgic style of waltz dance and the east-meets-west music, attendees will don reimagined versions of traditional Filipiniana fashion like the barong and the terno.

Harana: Fashion Walk for Culture

Fashion will be best promoted as a great and uplifting part of heritage and culture on the “Harana: Fashion Walk for Culture” segment. This fashion show segment will have fashion muses composed by personalities in the social circle, business, finance, fashion, culture and the arts. As they model the re-imagined versions of traditional Filipiniana by renowned Filipino fashion designers serenaded by opera artists from LyrOPERA.

2022 Filipino Heritage Awards

The Filipino Heritage Awards are granted to companies or individuals that help define Filipino identity in the field of arts, heritage and culture. This year’s ceremony of granting the awards will set the precedent of honoring and giving citations for a wide-range of brands and personalities—from prominent corporate institutions, household name consumer products, to fine art purveyors—that have stood the test of time in being icons of Filipino arts and culture.

The Philippine Heritage Society envisions the ceremony of granting the awards as The Philippine Heritage Society Ball’s main segment in every iteration of the event as it continually inspires support for Philippine arts and culture and the creative soul of the Filipinos.

The Philippine Heritage Society

With roots from 10-year-strong opera company LyrOPERA, The Philippine Heritage Society has been steadfast in dedicating its initiatives to the preservation of Philippine arts and culture and the upholding of the welfare of artists and artisans.
