January 6, 2017, Friday — Musikverein Kressbronn, composed of 70 German musicians from Kressbronn, Germany serenaded the enthusiastic audience at the Damosa Car Park last January 6, 2017, Friday evening. Their repertoire included a number of familiar OPM songs that delighted the crowd — from all ages. Despite the rain, the concert was well-attended and applauded.
Musikverein Kressbronn, named after a place in Germany, was founded in 1805 and has toured the world with their enigmatic voices and sound. Not their first time to visit, the group has been known to visit parts of the country to serenade Filipinos with their heartfelt rendition of OPM hits — accompanied with amazing vocals.
To kick start the year, Musikverein Kressbronn filled the Damosa Car Park with tunes that initiated flashbacks to the audience. Together with them, students from the Davao School for the Blinds (One Light Band) also performed and was their opening act for the night. It was not just a night of tunes and songs, adding to the festivities, a Tinikling Philippine Folk dance was performed on stage with a graceful Filipina dancer.
The concert began with Musikverein Kressbronn playing our National Anthem, the Lupang Hinirang. The concert was also for FREE and was sponsored by Anflocor and Damosa Land Incorporated, to name a few.
