The Filharmonic is an authentic and truly talented a cappella group. This five-member Filipino-American vocal ensemble brings music memories and songs to life.
As an L.A.-based singing group, they were featured on The Sing-Off, NBC’S hit televised musical competition. The vocal group had made the semi-finals and was invited to join The Sing-Off National Tour of performances. Featured in the Universal Pictures hit movie “Pitch Perfect 2”, the group soon became a viral musical sensation after appearing several times on The Late Late Show with James Cordon – having fun with his “Riff-Off” segments – accompanying stars such as Jamie Foxx, Smokey Robinson, John Legend, Anna Kendrick, and Neil Patrick Harris.
The Filharmonic was named the #1 college booked entertainment group of the year in 2016, and their unique blend of rhythm and vocals has entertained more than 150 college stage audiences nationwide. Comprised of professional vocalists, The Filharmonic includes: tenor vocalist VJ Rosales, tenor Joe Caigoy, vocal bass Jules Cruz, tenor Trace Gaynor, and beat boxer Niko Del Rey.
Having enjoyed a 12-show residency at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, The Filharmonic is also featured in the 2022 Tower Theatre Foundation’s annual Bend A Cappella Festival. The yearly festival showcases an exceptional mix of R&B artists, Pop stars, Hip Hop, and nostalgic music from the 1990’s.
Established for many years, their sound is authentic and intriguing. Performing covers of hits as well as their own original songs, they can keep the audiences dancing and singing along — from a seamless rendition of Nick Jonas’ “Chains”, to Bruno Mars’ “Treasure”, Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself”, Blackstreet’s “No Diggity”, a version of Maroon 5’s “Sugar” and “One More Night”. The hits keep coming as they sing a slightly slower version of Rihanna’s “Work”, and Drake ‘s “Get Up and Go”. The group will often add “Flashlight”, an original song from “Pitch Perfect”, as a nod to their movie appearance. Besides their fun energy, what really makes their performances great is how they interact with their happy audiences.
The Filharmonic has played prestigious college and university venues, large theaters, casino stages, special events, as well as festivals and award celebrations. The group will get audiences dancing, clapping, and happily singing along. This band is perfect for large concert halls, performing arts centers, night clubs, and special entertainment.
