The Manila Symphony Orchestra Finds its New Home and Stage at Ayala Malls Circuit Lane

Manila Symphony Orchestra hopes to bring classical music closer to the public with its recently opened music hall at Ayala Malls Circuit Lane. Besides the MSO Music Academy in Glorietta, the new MSO recital hall will be the main rehearsal venue for both Manila Symphony Orchestra (MSO) and Manila Symphony Orchestra Junior (MSO).

What started as a venue partnership between Ayala Malls and MSO has now evolved to a full blown advocacy, Music Everywhere, that aims to make classical music accessible to the public. Since then, mall goers have been privileged to watch and listen to open rehearsals and pocket performances of MSO’s esteemed musicians. More than that, the partnership has paved the way for young talents to discover and harness their musical talent.

With the opening of its new home at Ayala Malls Circuit Lane, MSO wishes to aspire more young Filipinos. Be a partner of the Manila Symphony Orchestra by visiting their website at www.manilasymphony.com. Get to know more about Ayala Malls Circuit Lane at www.ayalamalls.com.ph.

Doublemint Gum LoveWraps: The story of a guy, a girl, and their stick of gum

Doublemint Gum LoveWraps: The story of a guy, a girl, and their stick of gum

Let’s face it, we all love a good love story. No matter how cliche the story is, a story about love is always a story worth sharing. Stories that stood the test of time. Stories that capture the innocence of first love. Name it.  We all love them. Because, truth be told, we all look forward to meeting “The One”  and have our very own “happy ever after.”

That’s why it’s no wonder that the romance of Sara and Juan that begins from high school and stretches to as far as adulthood warms the heart of many Filipinos. It has chemistry. It has kilig. The story is innocent and most of all, it is sincere. What’s more, the voice of Haley Reinhart singing Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” in the background is just equally moving.

As of now, the clip has garnered over 4 million views on Facebook and still counting. Netizens have expressed their feelings for the couple in the commercial.

Now imagine if your love story is in those wrappers.

Due to the overwhelming response to the commercial, Doublemint is making it possible for you to sketch your sweetest story through LoveWraps. All you have to do is upload three images that best tell your story to www.mylovewraps.com and voila, your DoublemintLoveWraps are ready! Furthermore, the best entries can win a trip to Boracay! Now that’s another moment to add to your love story.

Doublemint’s LoveWraps will run from April 17 to May 21, 2017. Visit www.mylovewraps.com now and start sharing!
