A hit in New York and London, Here Lies Love is an internationally recognized revolutionary musical about the People Power Revolution that inspired the world and changed the Philippines forever. The Soiree will be a special evening bringing together the community and leaders passionate about Filipino arts and culture as well as invited Philippine government dignitaries and business captains of industry.
Join us also for the Sari-Sari: a market for Filipino-made products showcased pre- and post-show. Included in the event is a Post-Show Q&A Panel followed by a reception to network with guests and delight in the provided Filipino food and refreshments.
This project is important to us, and to the Filipino community. We hope that we can count on your to help us make this event successful so that FYLPRO can continue to develop leaders that will advocate for the advancement of the Philippines and Filipino community in the U.S.
