The Kalilangan Festival 2008 will be in full swing starting Saturday, February 16, 2008 with a Grand Opening Parade around the city’s main streets. This 11-day long affair which is in celebration of General Santos City‘s 69th Foundation Anniversary is one of the most anticipated festivals this year aside from the Tuna Festival in September.

One of the events lined up and is scheduled on February 23, 2008 is a fund-raising concert of former child actress Aiza Seguerra, and the Philippines’ premier vocal ensemble The Company. Sponsored by the Passionist Community of the Philippines (whose priests will also perform in the concert) in cooperation with the GenSan City Government and the Sarangani Provincial Government, this concert-for-a-cause is dubbed as “Pasyonista… Galak ng Gintong Gunita” in commemoration of the Passionist Community’s 50th Anniversary in the Philippines.

This concert will be held at the Lagao Gym at exactly 7:00pm. Tickets which are available at the Our Lady of Peace & Good Voyage Parish, Arnevel’s Restaurant, and Holy Cross Parish are priced at P1200, 1000, 800, 400, 200 and 50.
