MANILA, Philippines - Filfest Cultural Foundation, in partnership with Insular Life, presents its second concert of the 2011 Season featuring Filipino violinist Joseph Esmilla and the Manila Symphony Orchestra (MSO) under the baton of Maestro Arturo Molina. They will perform Antonin Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings in E Major and Antonio Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons on April 9 at 8 p.m. at the Insular Life Corporate Center Auditorium in Alabang.
