Ayala Center Cebu: Boston Rondalla Performing On July 15


Have fun listening to traditional, colorful and contemporary music as the Iskwelahang Pilipino (IP) Rondalla of Boston will be performing live on July 15, 2013 7PM  at the Activity Center.

Based in Boston USA, the IP Rondalla has developed into a versatile ensemble capable of playing folk, popular, and art music, as well as contemporary compositions for rondalla. The students quickly found that they could incorporate dance and movement into their repertoire, a first for rondallas in general and a signature of the IP Rondalla to this day.

Over the years, the IP Rondalla has matured as a truly Filipino American expression. The Rondalla regularly performs at US colleges, folk festivals and other Filipino American events raising awareness about Filipino Americans and the Philippines and eliciting nostalgia for the homeland among Filipino expatriates through familiar tunes. Other highlights for the rondalla in the US include playing at the United Nations in NYC, twice performing for then- President Fidel Ramos, and devoting a concert to the Filipino maestro, Nitoy Gonzales.

For their 2013 tour of the Philippines, IP’s ambassadors of goodwill have been instilled with the civic spirit to donate all the proceeds of their concerts to the charitable causes of their Philippine hosts.

Don’t miss this world-class performance ranging from traditional English dances, to folk songs like “Karaton,” and “Pobreng Alindahaw, and a cheerful medley of popular Filipino love songs such as “Ewan (I don’t know)” meshed with “Marry You” by American artist Bruno Mars, brought to you by Cebu’s premiere destination for shopping, dining and entertainment, Ayala Center Cebu.
