The "Goldenberg: The Concert Series" featuring the Manila Symphony Orchestra

The project aims to connect the Filipino youth with talented musicians in the Philippines



The inaugural concert took place on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at the historic Goldenberg Mansion in San Miguel, Manila. The event featured performances by musicians from the Manila Symphony Orchestra.

The Goldenberg Mansion, once the residence of Stella Goldenberg-Brimo, a regular soloist with the Manila Symphony Orchestra after the Second World War, was fittingly chosen as the venue. The featured pianist for the evening was Mariel Ilusorio, a protégé of Mrs. Stella Goldenberg-Brimo herself.
