A couple of months ago, my wife and I watched music conductor Gerard Salonga and ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra in the show titled “The Magic of John Williams” at The Theater at Solaire Resort and Casino in Paranaque City.
We totally enjoyed the show as we listened to wonderful musical scores by American composer John Williams from blockbuster movies such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler’s List, Superman, and Jaws. The acoustics of the Theater was excellent and comparable to those in The West End of London.
The performance of the orchestra was superb. My personal favorites were the haunting melodies of Schindler’s List and the themes from Superman and Star Wars. Music conductor Gerard Salonga at various times provided some comic relief in between performances. All in all, the show was excellent and wonderful!!!
Afterwards, we had fine Italian cuisine for dinner at Finestra. The ambiance there is truly amazing and their complimentary breads are definitely one of the best in the country. Our main courses of Carbonara Cremosa and Risotto were not as impressive, but were delicious nonetheless.
As an added bonus, we got to view various paintings along the hallway with the Mona Lisa Project. The Mona Lisa Project is a collection of works which integrates Leonardo da Vinci’s famous icon, The Mona Lisa. It is curated by artist Soler Santos.
This is definitely one of our most memorable evenings in 2015.
