After more than 400 performances around the country and in Italy, the highly anticipated musical “How To Remain Young at Heart” will finally have a playdate in Zamboanga City.

The Federation for Lay Education on Heart Diseases, Inc. (FLEHD), in coordination with the Zamboanga Puericulture School for Allied Medicine (ZPSAM) and the City Health Office (CHO), is bringing to the city the much awaited Medical Musical on Friday, March 9, 2012 at 6:00 pm at the Convention Center of the
Garden Orchid Hotel.

Dr. Aldolfo Bellosillo, lyricist, libretto, and director of the whole production, heads the show, with homegrown Zamboangueno musical genius Jeremiah Documento Calisang providing the music and arrangement of the musical which has received positive reviews here and abroad.

Dr. Rodel Agbulos, City Health Officer who heads the local organizing committee, disclosed that no less than the country’s mezzo soprano Jai Sabas Aracama along with the University of the Philippines (UP) Concert Chorus and the FLEHD Ballet artists will take centerstage for the Zamboanga show.

“This is actually a lecture regarding health, particularly cardiovascular health, but it is presented not in the usual lecture form, but in a musical rendition. The core objective here is to help enlighten our residents, particularly those in the medical profession and allied medicine courses to be updated with the knowledge that cardiovascular diseases remain to be among the top maladies that has claimed many lives,” Agbulos said.

Agbulos is inviting physicians, nurses, midwives, caregivers, and students of medical allied courses to take part in the important ‘musical-lecture’, which is deemed as the first of its kind as it is being interpreted by the country’s leading operatic artists.
