MANILA – The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) will hold the “Misa de Aguinaldo” or Christmas Eve Mass on December 24 at its main theater.
There will be a pre-mass performance at 6:30 p.m. at the CCP Main Theater Lobby, featuring Christmas carols by choral groups such as Kammerchor Manila Inc., God the Father Choir, Maria Mater Dei Choir, and Himig Tondo.
Visitors can also watch a performance by Tanghalang Pilipino.
During the open house, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra will render Christmas carols followed by a live excerpt of “Panunuluyan,” a dramatic reenactment of the Holy Family’s search for a place to stay in Bethlehem before Jesus’ birth.
The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra will also participate in the mass, along with Las Cantates de Manila. A performance by a 100-voice chorale will be the event’s finale.
Fr. Mario Sobrejuanite will be the mass celebrant. For more details, call (02) 832-1125 local 1404 or 1412.
