A concert for the restoration of the currently-closed Cathedral-Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, popularly known as the Manila Cathedral, will be held on December 12, 2012, 7 pm, at the Meralco Theater.
Dubbed "Patron of the Arts," the benefit concert brings together the country's top performers, especially those who have won awards, made headlines or been featured in top-rating shows on theater and television. The event will honor great Filipino artists with a lifetime achievement award.
"The concert affirms the Catholic Church's continuous support of the Arts," said JesCom Executive Director Fr. Nono Alfonso, SJ. "The innate creativity and talent of Filipinos is God's gift."
Organized by the Jesuit Communications, the "Patron of the Arts" is inspired by the "Royal Variety Show," an annual Christmas tradition in the United Kingdom where the best entertainment artists of the year perform before the Queen of England and the Royal Family. The show is considered an important social event, and attended by personages in full regalia.
