30 Years of Christmas Concerts
Christmas came early at The Peninsula Manila, which celebrated the beginning of the festive season with the highly anticipated 30th Annual Christmas Concert at The Pen. The two-hour holiday concert took place in the majestic Lobby, featuring classic carols sung by some of the Philippines’ most celebrated talents.
The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, which performed under the baton of Maestro Ruggero Barbieri, the University of Santo Tomas Singers, the Philippine Madrigal Singers, Jose Mari Chan, Rachelle Gerodias and Lani Misalucha all lent their voices to the joyous occasion, which has over the years become part of the Makati City Christmas tradition. A percentage of the proceeds raised from the concert benefitted ‘Hope For The Philippines’, The Peninsula Hotels' group-wide relief effort for the Philippine super typhoon survivors.
