Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra

The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) is the country’s leading orchestra, widely regarded as one of the top musical ensembles in the Asia Pacific Region.

The PPO was formally inaugurated in 1973 as the CCP Philharmonic Orchestra and was initially intended to assist artists performing at the CCP Theater. The PPO keeps a busy schedule with its regular concert season, performances, special concerts, and outreach performances. It has performed with many of the world’s most renowned conductors and has also performed with some of the very best Filipino and foreign artists.

The PPO has premiered Filipino compositions and has featured works by foreign composers not yet performed in the Philippines. It continues to promote music appreciation through outreach concerts in schools, parishes, government agencies and underserved communities in Metro Manila and in different regions in the country.
