Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is bringing back their celebration of music and talent with the Toyota Classics 2018. Now on its 19th year running, this is your chance to witness the performances of the internationally-renowned Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment from London under the guidance of conductor and harpsichordist Steven Devine, and renowned singer Lea Salonga. The show is scheduled for November 7, 2018 at the Theater of Solaire Resort & Casino.
This year, the Toyota Classics will focus on the theme “Music that Moves Lives”, aligning with the global vision of Toyota of providing mobility for the world. The concert also supports the “Start Your Impossible” campaign, aimed at inspiring people to go for their dreams and male the impossible happen. Since 1990, the Toyota Classics is one of Toyota’s biggest ventures, raising close to USD 9.5 million for the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), distributing the money to numerous local charities across the Asia Pacific Region for the past 29 years. For this year, Toyota’s beneficiary is para-swimmer gold medalist, Mr. Ernie Gawilanand the Philippine Paralympic Committee (PPC).
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has been performing for over 30 years, and a few notable compositions to be played by the orchestra are Handel’s Water Music, Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 25. With a focus on baroque music, composed between the years 1600 to 1750, has played a huge role in influencing composers and performers in the music industry. This is also in line with the goal of bringing appreciation to classical music in Asia.
Aside from the Philippines, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will also be performing in other Asian countries, such as Brunei, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
