Las Piñas City Mayor Mel Aguilar and city hall employees were treated to a world class musical performance on last November 21 during the visit of acclaimed Japanese pianist and composer Motoki Hirai.

Aguilar and other local officials listened in awe as Hirai’s hands glided across the piano during an impromptu performance at the city hall’s taxpayer’s lounge.

Hirai has performed in prestigious venues like Wigmore Hall in London, Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the Carnegie Hall in New York.

After his performance, Hirai promised Aguilar that he will visit Las Piñas City to conduct piano workshop for public school students.

Joining Aguilar in listening to Hirai’s performance were Councilor Mark Santos, Father Didoy Molina of the Christ the King Parish.
