What joy it is to listen to the songs we used to hear during the “golden age of music,” the songs we loved to listen to and sing from the Broadway musicals of our generation. And these songs were featured at a concert held by the UCCP Social Concerns Foundation o its 50th Anniversary.

It was a Saturday afternoon, August 31, 2019 when we watched the matinee show at the UCCP Congregational Church located along the crossroad of A. Pelayo and Bonifacio Streets.
