Porat on Music and One Humanity

A classical music benefit concert entitled “One Humanity: The tie that binds cultures together — a Christmas tribute by Matan Porat” was held last Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. at the Marcelo B. Fernan Cebu Press Center in Lahug, Cebu City.

Regarded as a musician of great insight and sensitivity, an Israel-born pianist and composer, Porat has appeared as soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, Irish National Symphony Orchestra and Israel Chamber and Symphony Orchestras. He also believes that through music you can reach the most inner part of a person and that you do not have to be rich or poor to appreciate it.

This event was presented by Omnilogy Inc., in cooperation with the Arts Council of Cebu, Cebu Music Learning Center, YMCA Cebu, Rotary Club of Talisay, Peace Philharmonic Philippines and Cebu Events Organizer, an advocacy business started by the Managements students of University of the Philippines Visayas Cebu College (UPVCC).

The concert is part of the Bridging the Gap concert series for the benefit of the programs of Omnilogy Inc. Sponsors of this series enjoyed two musical performances by international performers Matan Porat (Israel) and Racquel Borromeo (US/Philippines) with Tenor, Ulises Solano (US/Costa Rica) on a different day (December 14) as their gifts helped fund future workshops and other philanthropic activities initiated by Omnilogy.
