Volvo Philippines continues to support music and the arts as it becomes the official transport of world-renowned pianist Cecile Licad.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Sanctuario de San Antonio and the 19th Francisfest, Licad performed along with the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra on October 2, 2015. Conducted by Gerard Salonga, the evening was filled with sweet notes and a repertoire that delighted all guests. More importantly, proceeds of the concert supported outreach programs such as the scholarship program for deserving youth, the PGH Pediatric Hospital Ministry, The Prison Ministry, victims of Typhoon Yolanda in Samar and poor Franciscan parishes in rural areas.
Licad was ferried to and from the venue in a Volvo S60, a sleek and stylish sports sedan. Armed with stunning good looks and superb road performance, it is only fitting that an artist of Licad’s caliber should also be ensconced in the confines of one of the world’s most comfortable cabins. Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed. Inside, the attention to detail, the authentic materials – such as wood and leather – and the easy-to-use controls contribute to the in-command driving experience. The interior detailing includes a Piano Black deco option, rotary jewel-like knobs in the center stack and a frameless inner rear-view mirror.
Confident with its superb handling, natural driving dynamics and legendary Volvo safety, the S60 embodies a thrillingly elegant form.
