The concert will be a musical invitation to celebrate the Holidays around the globe and will take audiences to the Philippines, Sarajevo, New York and more.
The concert, hosted by Don Mike Mendoza and Lora Nicolas Olaes, will feature remastered versions of some of FASO’s best holiday performances, and Ryan Cayabyab’s “Kumukutikutitap.”
There will be a special performance by Filipina pop and jazz singer Ms. Joey Albert, a multi-platinum hit artist who celebrates 40 years in the music industry. Albert’s catalog features beloved favorites such as “Tell Me,” and “A Million Miles Away.”
Bob Shroder, FASO musical director and conductor states: “As we approach these final weeks of 2021, we invite all to join us in a musical reflection upon the blessings that have connected many of us in our multiple communities. When we are connected to our friends and families, across the seas, our holiday celebration is even more joyful. We hope our concert conveys that same message of Joy and Peace from all of us at FASO. May it reach your hearts and give you a cause to celebrate.”
