Alay Kay Inay: A Virtual Mother’s Day Celebration

View Calendar

The University of the Philippines Alumni Association in America, Inc. (UPAAA), University of the Philippines Alumni Association Arizona Chapter, Inc. (UPAAAz), and University of the Philippines Alumni Association New Jersey Chapter, Inc. (UPAANJ) invite you to a Mother’s Day virtual concert: “Alay Kay Inay“ in celebration of Mother’s Day.  This is a fundraising event to benefit the scholarship program of the sponsoring UPAAs.  While the tuition fees of the University of the Philippines are free, financially challenged students still need assistance to defray miscellaneous costs of their education, especially during this pandemic.

The virtual concert will be held on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 7:30 PM Eastern Time.  The concert proper begins at 8:00 PM.  Headlining the invited performers are famed Cecile Azarcon-Inocentes, Philippines’ legendary and highly- acclaimed songwriter and singer, whose music has been recorded and sang by Filipino and international artists; and Maestro Robert Shroder, resident conductor of the Filipino American Symphony Orchestra, who led and guided the only musical ensemble in California committed to the enrichment of Filipino culture through orchestra music.   Another notable performer at this concert is US – based Pinoy band Sounds of Manila, a successful nine-member band who has successfully carved a niche in the US with their music.   The concert organizer carefully vetted the artists who will share their musical talents for the listening pleasure of the audience.

One of the highlights of the event is the set of dedicated 30 or 60 second video clips honoring one’s mother which will be featured during the concert.  For more information, please check out the Eventbrite event page for available sponsorships, or e-mail  [email protected].
