Countdown to 500 Years Special – “Music of the 500 Years”

“Music of the 500 Years” with National Artist Ryan Cayabyab and Ms. Trina Belamide (The 2019 PhilPop Bootcamp Experience), Dinah Remolacio (Creating a Playlist for 500 Years), Roel Rostata (Creating the Theme Song for 500 Years), Dante Beriong (Creating the 1998 Philippine Centennial); moderated by Prof. Xiao Chua (De La Salle University), Rene Napeñas (National Commission for Culture and the Arts), Bing Kimpo (Radyo Pilipinas) and Ian Christopher B. Alfonso (National Historical Commission of the Philippines)

This was the alternative activity in lieu of the 1-year countdown to the main event of the 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines (2021 QCP)—500th anniversary of the Victory at Mactan—due to COVID-19 pandemic. Various stakeholders of the 2021 QCP will come together to keep the public abreast about the milestones in 2021 through “Countdown to 500 Special.” The public joined in the discussion primarily on the official Facebook page of the National Quincentennial Committee.
