After the launching of the ‘Cine Kartilya’, a free public showing on Friday at the historic Bonifacio Shrine, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno bared the famed Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra also offered to play for Manila residents for free.

Moreno said the public may soon be treated to a free viewing of the famed Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, which is regarded as one of the top musical ensembles in the Asia-Pacific region.

According to Charlie Dungo, chief of the Manila Tourism and Cultural Affairs Bureau (MTCAB), the orchestra has offered to play for Manila residents for free, as they expressed how inspired they were by the positive changes in Manila since Moreno assumed office.

Moreno expressed gratitude for the ‘very generous’ offer, noting how pricey the tickets normally are for the said orchestra’s shows.

In his short message prior to the showing, Moreno thanked the public for coming and said the city government wanted to promote love of culture and heritage.

“Tonight is about culture, about us being Filipinos. Ang di marunong lumingon sa nakaraan ay di makararating sa paroroonan. Kaya natin nilinis itong Bonifacio Shrine ay dahil binibigyang-halaga natin ang mga nakasulat diyan,” he said.
