Watch the BYU Chamber Orchestra’s visit to the Philippines!


The BYU Chamber Orchestra went to the Philippines on their extended tour this past summer. One of the biggest highlights was that they accompanied Broadway star Lea Salonga in a concert in her hometown of Manila.

You can watch their performance with Lea Salonga and go behind the scenes of their tour where they performed 11 concerts, reached out in humanitarian service, and met the kind Filipino people. Their tour’s documentary will be featured on BYUtv, September 30th at 12:00pm after the Saturday morning session of General Conference.

Until then, check out their photo essay of their tour and read more about it.
