Lights at the CCP

THE iconic Cultural Center of the Philippines building becomes a colorful canvas featuring lanterns created by the Kapampangan craftsmen for the Sinag: Festival of Radiance light show. The lights will “dance” to the song “Pagdiwang sa Ginintuang Pagsilang,” specially commissioned by the CCP, with lyrics by National Artist Bienvenido Lumbera and music and orchestration by National Artist Ryan Cayabyab. An art installation by multimedia artist Abdulmari “Toym” Imao Jr. at the CCP Front Lawn complements the light and sound show. Sinag will be launched on Sept. 26, with shows at 7 and 8:30 p.m. while the show lasts for about 10 minutes, stay to see the three programs that the Center prepares for passersby, tourists and visitors of the CCP Complex. The annual lighting of the CCP facade, which started several years back, has become a beloved tradition which the community looks forward to each year. This year, the light and sound show, which runs until Jan. 5, 2020, is part of the CCP’s 50th anniversary celebration.
