Couple Franco and Ayen Laurel will perform in their first concert together, billed as ‘Kitang Dalawa,’ at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ (CCP) Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino on Thursday, Oct. 11.

Their repertoire covers a wide range of musical genres from Broadway to original Pilipino musicals. They will also share with the audience their forays into pop, jazz, gospel and kundiman.

Married for almost 18 years now, the concert would be a celebration of the couple’s best moments in their lives as  artists, soul mates, parents and friends.
