() - January 13, 2011 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The CompanY is starting the year with the spirit of gratitude in its upcoming concert titled The CompanY at 25: Isang Pasasalamat on Jan. 21 and 22 at The Sanctuary of Word for the World Christian Fellowship, ACCM Building, 102 Valero St., Salcedo Village, Makati City; 8 p.m. Tickets are now available at 544-7906 or 753-1609, and SM Tickets 470-2222.

The vocal quintet composed of Annie Quintos, Moy Ortiz, Cecile Bautista, Sweet Plantado and Jay Marquez have much to be thankful for given the banner year they had just experienced. 2010 was the year The CompanY celebrated its 25th year with a hit album titled Lighthearted from Viva Records and a sold-out concert series at the Music Museum billed as CO.25.

The CompanY at 25: Isang Pasasalamat is an all OPM (Original Pilipino Music) concert celebration that showcases the best hit songs and most competent vocal interpreters of this much beloved music genre. The concert’s special guests include Basil Valdez, Christian Bautista and Sam Concepcion — all of whom will sing their respective hit songs and musical production numbers with The CompanY.

The CompanY’s repertoire will run the breadth and length of OPM in its various forms — from jazz to classical, from musical theater to folk music, from pop to doo-wop, from acoustic to electronica, from a cappella to symphonic. A highlight of the show will be the 20-minute medley titled Hits Musicale that will feature all original hits of The CompanY to be presented in the form of a short musical play. Hits Musicale was staged by Floy Quintos.

The CompanY at 25: Isang Pasasalamat is presented by Beginnings at Twenty Plus and Star Express, OPM advocates which gave us the highly-successful Ogie Alcasid-Ryan Cayabyab PICC Concert titled OC at the PICC and Last Valentine’s nAPO nila of the APO Hiking Society last February 2010), and Word for the World Christian Fellowship.

Beth Martin will be the show’s musical director. The show is conceptualized, written and directed by Moy. Wardrobe and costumes are designed and executed by Joey Samson. Sherwin Cervantes does hair and makeup. Jewelry pieces are by Arnel Papa. The concert series is a fund-raising project for the benefit of Word for the World.
