Musika sa ISLA

The Sound of Music

Classical music takes center stage in Marinduque’s ¬†3rd Annual

“Musika sa Isla”

BOAC, MARINDUQUE‚ÄĒSymphonies are due to wake the sleepy town of Boac,¬†Marinduque as the city holds its third ‚ÄúMusika sa Isla,‚ÄĚ the country‚Äôs only classical¬†music festival, on May 18, 19, and 21. Premier musicians from Asia are gracing the¬†three-day event.

‚ÄúMusika sa Isla‚ÄĚ gathers a diverse roster of musical talents, ranging from pianists to¬†seasoned singers. This year, Franz Chen of Indonesia and Tomoyo Kobayashi from Japan are playing the piano. Japan‚Äôs Kazuki Yamamoto is the festival‚Äôs lone violinist,¬†while Ivan Jenzer is representing the Philippines on the cello. Filipino soprano¬†singer Arlene Escultero and baritone singer Joseleo Logdat are joining as well.

The festival will take place in the capital’s storied attractions. On May 18, the International Concert starts at 6 p.m. at the St. Raphael Parish. On May 19, the Grand Gala starts at 6 p.m. at the Boac covered court. Watch out for the additional concert on May 21 at the Moriones Arena and Park.

But the better news is, good music is finally affordable. Tickets sell for P200 for each event; students even get 50% off for one.

‚ÄúMusika sa Isla‚ÄĚ is set in the quaint but bustling city of Boac in Marinduque province.¬†The heart-shaped island takes pride in its scenic landscape, rustic charm, and other¬†natural wonders. Its near zero-crime crate and impressive agri-based economy are¬†attracting curious wanderers as Marinduque poises itself as a budding tourist¬†destination. Once dubbed as the country‚Äôs ‚Äúforgotten paradise,‚ÄĚ it‚Äôs time for us to¬†remember the beauty we‚Äôve always had, the beauty we need to recognize. An easy¬†bus trip away, JAC Liner even includes the RORO pass with their advanced¬†reservations now available online.

The third annual classical music festival is supported by AGREA Philippines, a local social enterprise that hopes to revitalize agriculture in the island of Marinduque.
