About the Event and Artists

The 121st Philippine Independence Day Gala Dinner & Concert will feature the best of Filipino talent through a concert by Philippine soprano duo, The Nightingales, with an opening act by the Sincerity Girls Ensemble, the awarding of the 2019 Kalayaan Spark*Connect*Empower* Heroes, the traditional Rigodon de Honor, and keynote remarks from eminent Filipino and American government leaders.

The concert will feature performances by the Nightingales who will perform a repertoire of Philippine folk songs, opera arias and Broadway, and the Sincerity Girls Ensemble, a group of vibrant Filipino American girls from Middle and High School Grades in the Bay Area who perform for various church and civic causes.

The Independence Day celebration is a Spark*Connect*Empower* (SCE) (https://sparkconnectempower.com/) event, which envisions to help spark pride in Philippine history and culture among Filipinos abroad. The movement aims to connect Filipinos with others, such as Filipino Americans in the United States, and empower them to give back to their communities. This could only be realized if Filipino Americans and the rest of the Filipino diaspora take pride in their history, culture, and heritage.
