Filipino cuisine and culture shines through its rich meals, decadent desserts, and distinctive snacks.

I always see to it that I’ll be attending every concert from the Philippine Madrigal Singers, and their last concert is one for the books! Their Trionfo concert features songs that they performed during their stint in Arezzo, where they bagged the championship and their qualification to the European Grand Prix for this year.
