Updated: November 8, 2019

“Mr. Singer–Songwriter” Ogie Alcasid gave a talk to the PWU Community on “Filipino Self-Awareness and Cultural Appreciation” on November 5, 2019. He discussed the efforts of OPM (Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-Aawit) in promoting Original Pilipino Music as part of our cultural identity as Filipinos. Mr. Alcasid is the current president of OPM and has worked to expand its membership to include many young artists from around the country.

The event entitled “Oras ng Pagkamalikhain” was a project of the PWU School of Arts and Sciences led by Dr. Ramon Acoymo. A lively exchange with the students followed Mr. Alcasid’s talk about the struggles of Filipino musicians and singers not just in the local music scene but in the international arena and the opportunities through today’s modern technology to provide more platforms for songwriters and singers to showcase their work and reach a wider audience.

Among the PWU officials who welcomed Ogie Alcasid to PWU were PWU chairperson Mrs. Vicky Amalingan Sales and PWU president Mr. Marco Benitez as well as faculty from the School of Arts and Sciences.
