Established in 1973 as an accompaniment for the performing artists at the CCP theater, PPO has been regarded as one of the top musical ensembles in the Asia-Pacific region. 

In June 2016, it made history as the first Filipino orchestra to perform at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall in New York City.
