Ang Misyon, Inc together with Consuelo Foundation kicked off the Christmas Holiday on December 20, 2018 with the San Jose de Buenavista Community Orchestra’s very first recital. The orchestra initially began with 22 students and gradually increased to 38, all of which played during their first performance at Delegate Angel Salazar Jr. Memorial School in San Jose, Antique. With the guidance of mentor Federico Frayna, the young orchestra was able to perform six musical pieces which included Christmas songs and a few classical ones.

The audience was filled with the children’s biggest supporters, which include Ang Misyon, Inc, Consuelo Foundation, Department of Education and their parents. Certificates of Recognition were given to the Community Orchestra members, Federico Frayna, John Dumadangon of Consuelo Foundation and Ms. Ma Elena Rivero, Parent Representative, to acknowledge their dedication and efforts.

In order to continue the mission in Antique, Mayor Elmer Untaran has signified his commitment to support the Community Orchestra, as he sees the potential and progress of the children in their music. In addition to those inspired by the youth and their passion, Honorable Dante Beriong, from San Jose’s Office Of The Sangguniang Bayan, a known Filipino composer and music lover himself sparked interest and immediately acknowledged Ang Misyon, Consuelo Foundation and the Orchestra’s young officers. The group was introduced to the Vice Mayor and other members of the local government.

With the warm reception at San Jose de Buenavista, we remain positive that the Community Orchestra will receive the sustainable support it needs in 2019 and beyond, thanks to Ang Misyon’s partners Consuelo Foundation, the parents and local government.

The Orchestra of the Filipino Youth was part of Shangri-la Plaza Mall’s Season of Wonders, a line up of featured musical performances throughout the month of December. The event was held on December 16, 2018 at the Grand Atrium, which gave Christmas shoppers a treat. Led by Music Director and Orchestra Conductor, Joshua Dos Santos, they captivated the crowd with a repertoire that combined both local and international classics, upholding the ground that an orchestra that plays classical music is indeed tasteful, timeless and fun especially during the holiday season.

Ang Misyon’s OFY Apprentice Orchestra performs for PAAFI

Ang Misyon’s OFY Apprentice Orchestra performs for PAAFI.  Under the baton of Maestro Juan Luis Muñoz, 55 members of the OFY Apprentice Orchestra performed for the scholars of PAAFI last December 9, 2018.  Playing pieces such as Christmas Festival, Grand Parade, Oriental Lanterns, Chamambo and Toy Drummer, the young orchestra regaled the equally young audience with their excellent performance.  OFY Apprentice Orchestra is composed of scholars aged 8-16 years old from various towns of Rizal, Laguna, Bulacan, Batangas and Cavite.

PAAFI or Phil-Asia Assistance Foundation, Inc. has helped over 10,000 children through scholarship assistance that covers transportation, allowance, school projects, school supplies, and uniforms.  PAAFI envisions today’s disadvantaged children growing into well-rounded and responsible citizens of tomorrow.

This is the farewell performance of Maestro Juan Luis Muñoz who served as the Orchestra Conductor of the Apprentice Orchestra for the past 3 years.  Ang Misyon is most grateful for the contribution of Maetro Juan Luis Muñoz!  Thank You, Maestro!

October 2018. Doha, Qatar. First International Tour of the Orchestra of the Filipino Youth.

“More, more!” – our fellow Filipinos shouted as the Orchestra of the Filipino winded down their performance at the Katara Royal Opera House in Doha, Qatar last October 26, 2018.  Maestro Joshua Dos Santos obliged with two more pieces much to the joy of the audience.  The OFY was treated like rock stars as the audience waited for them at the lobby for photos and chats.


A perfect way to cap five-day tour of Doha, Qatar in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs!

Following a first performance in May 2018 at the DFA Auditorium, the DFA partnered with Ang Misyon for a 2-performance tour of Doha, Qatar as part of their cultural diplomacy program.  This marks the first ever international tour of the full orchestra since its founding in 2013.

69 members of the OFY, 10 staff and 1.5 tons of instruments left Manila on October 24, 2018 on board Philippine Airlines for a direct flight to Doha, Qatar.


Qatar National Library.  An impressive library that envisions housing 1,000,000 titles hosted the OFY’s first performance in Doha.  An international audience estimated to be 300 saw an international audience of all ages.  OFY’s repertoire was composed of an international selection from Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Austria, Spain and the Philippines.  The OFY is the first Philippine group to ever perform at the QNL which was inaugurated only in April 2018!

Katara Royal Opera House.  Located at the Katara Cultural Village, the Katara Royal Opera House and the Philippine Embassy hosted the gala performance of the OFY where it performed Shostakovich Symphony No. 12 to a capacity audience from the diplomatic corps, Qatar business and Filipino communities.


OFY wishes to thank the Department of Foreign Affairs for making its first international tour possible.  Equal thanks also go to Philippine Airlines, Penshoppe, Rockwell Land Corporation, Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, First Philippine Holdings and First Gen for their support.
