Pingkian: Isang Musikal

An afternoon filled with pride for our country’s rich history as I witnessed the moving portrayal of Emilio Jacinto’s journey in ‘Pingkian: Isang Musikal’.

As Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Culture and the Arts, it is an honor to have supported this exceptional production. My heartfelt gratitude goes to Tanghalang Pilipino Foundation Inc. (TP), the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), National Artist Virgilio Almario, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), Katipunan sa Kultura at Kasaysayan, the talented production crew and cast, and everyone who contributed efforts to ensure such a remarkable display of our history and culture.

Jacinto’s struggles and triumphs onstage remind us of Filipino resilience and spirit. His qualities of empathy, intelligence, and grit resonate deeply within us, inspiring us to rise above challenges. Let’s draw inspiration from his legacy and celebrate our culture, history, and enduring spirit of freedom. Mabuhay ang sining at kultura ng Pilipinas!
