    5 Composers/1 Theme: A Filipino American Composition Project

    FASO would commission up-and-coming composers in the community to each synthesize five iconic Philippine and American folk songs and themes like “Bahay Kubo,” “Leron, Leron Sinta” and “Old MacDonald Had a Farm”. This program is one component of FASO's Education and Outreach program by utilizing orchestra music as a common ground, finding unity by celebrating our diverse cultures and ancestry. To impact equity and segregation in Los Angeles, FASO directly provides music and education to youth and families of underserved BIPOC communities.
