#FANHS PA supports "Hope and Harmony," Philippine Folk Arts Society, Inc./PFASI's Rondalla Concert, 28 October, 7 pm EST

The Philippine Folk Arts Society, Inc. (PFASI), featuring the Philadelphia region's premier Philippine rondalla/string ensemble, invites you all to “Hope and Harmony,” PFASI’s 9th annual rondalla concert on October 28, 2021 at 7 pm EST. With “Hope and Harmony” as PFASI’s 2021 theme, one goal of the virtual rondalla concert is for everyone to find hope in uplifting music and the cultural strengths of gathering - even virtually - as a supportive community. For it’s this hope found in culture and community that sustains us amidst ongoing struggles for racial justice, the challenges of health care, rising militarization, and the need for creating harmony in our fragile global home. While the virtual concert is free to viewers, donations are encouraged and will support Pakiglambigit 2021 - the Public Service, Extension, and Covid Outreach Program of the University of the Philippines College of Social Work and Community Development. Register for PFASI’s virtual concert here: pfasirondallaconcert.eventbrite.com FANHS Pennsylvania Chapter (FANHS PA) and the Philippine Folk Arts Society, Inc. (PFASI) have supported each other's work throughout the years. We look forward to seeing you at Hope and Harmony on October 27. UPDATED 29 October 2021 Congratulations to President Dr. Aida Navidad Rivera and everyone at PFASI for another successful PFASI Rondalla Concert, your 9th!
