Renowned and multi-awarded singer Lea Salonga headlines this years Toyota Classics 
The Toyota Classics this year shall focus on bringing the joy of music with the theme, “Music that Moves Lives.” Aligned with Toyota’s global vision of providing mobility for all, the said concert supports the ‘Start Your Impossible’ campaign, aiming to inspire people to strive for their dreams and make their impossible happen. 

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will delight the audience with baroque music, a style composed between the years 1600 to 1750, that has changed the view of composers and performers in the music industry. Baroque music expanded the size, range, and complexity of instrumental performance, mobilizing music into a space that was viewed before as ‘not’ possible.

More than a celebration of remarkable music and performance since 1990, the Toyota Classics is one of Toyota’s biggest ventures to uphold the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility. This concert has raised close to $9.50 million for beneficiaries of local charities across the Asia Pacific Region for the past 29 years. 

Moreover, the concert has also helped promote sustainable development and of course, the beauty of classical music in several countries across Asia. For this year, Toyota’s beneficiary is para-swimmer gold medalist, Ernie Gawilan and the Philippine Paralympic Committee (PPC). 

Formed by the Philippine Sport for the Differently-Abled (Philspada), the PPC now serves as the counterpart of the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) led by its president Mike Barredo, a former Philippine Sports commissioner who also heads Philspada.

Apart from the Philippines, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will also be performing in other Asian countries – Brunei, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Interested patrons who wish to enjoy this concert can purchase tickets through Ticket World. To find out more about the Toyota Classics 2018, visit for more details.
