To commemorate the Aliw Awards Foundation
40th year, belatedly, the Aliw Awards Foundation, Inc. in cooperation with Tag Media and the Star Parks Corporation, is mounting a star-studded concert at the Aliw Theater on October 4,2018.
The project was announced at the Press Conference held at Unicity Restaurant, Century City Mall on Kalayaan, Makati City in front of the Trump Tower yesterday.
Contrary to public perception, Aliw Theater is NOT owned by the Aliw Awards Foundation,Inc. It belongs to the Elizalde family which has been very supportive of the Foundation over the years, thanks to Lisa Macuja Elizalde.
The concert under the direction of Freddie Santos will feature awardees of the non-stock non-profit private organization ,the pioneering awards giving body for Filipino live entertainers.
Invited to join the cast of this unique presentation are Rico J. Puno, Pilita Corrales, Lisa Macuja Elizalde, Celeste Legaspi, Dulce, Basil Valdez, Imelda Papin, Hajji Alejandro, Claire de la Fuente and Jun Polistico.
The holding of an Aliw show at the Aliw Theater has always been a dream of the Aliw Awards Foundation, which held an Aliw Awards Night and “Best of Aliw” previously at Star Theater.
Tag Media’s Grace Nicolas and her staff are working hard to ensure the success of this history-making project. We wish them luck!
