Merci: The Virlanie Children’s Choir’s Send-off Concert

Before going on their 2nd Spring Tour to France, the Virlanie Children’s Choir staged a concert on March 28, 2015 at the SDA Theater, SDA Building, P. Ocampo St., De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde, Manila. This concert was launched to thank the Foundation’s friends and supporters who helped make the tour happen. Virlanie Foundation’s partners and friends from the French community, private and government sector, individual patrons and distinguished guests were invited to the concert.


In 2004, The Virlanie Children’s Choir performed for Her Royal Highness Princess Caroline of Hanover and from that time, they have successfully performed in various venues in the Philippines and Europe. The Virlanie Children’s Choir is led by well-acclaimed Choirmaster and Musical Director, Ms. Maria Lourdes Hermo.

The trip to France and the Manila concert were made possible through the generous support of the following sponsors: Dr. Stephen Zuellig, Enfance Tiers Monde, Lions Club Douai in France, Virlanie France and all its volunteers, and Madame Brigitte Ayrault. Virlanie Foundation Inc. also appreciates the support of Regional Director Alice Bonoan of the Department of Social Welfare and Development-National Capital Region, the French Consulate and His Excellency Ambassador Gilles Garachon.

To create more success and inspiration for the children , you can help by volunteering, donating or sponsoring a Virlanie child.
