Louie Ocampo: Composer Ka Lang Anniversary Concert
The concert will be peppered with various conceptualized segments that tackle the various sides of Louie Ocampo – as a struggling musician, as a jilted lover, as a husband and father, as a fellow and collaborative composer, as a competition judge and Louie alone, reflecting on how far he has gone after 45 years in the industry.
Composer, arranger and media celebrity Louie Ocampo is set to mark his 45th anniversary in the entertainment business with a concert series titled Composer Ka Lang at The Theatre At Solaire on February 4 and 5, 2023.
Produced by Viva Live Inc. and Solaire Resort Entertainment City, Composer Ka Lang stars Ocampo and featured guests Martin Nievera, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Basil Valdez, Katrina Velarde, Janine Teñoso, Lyca Gairanod, Sarah Geronimo and Sharon Cuneta who will perform his hit songs. The show will focus on the music that Ocampo has created over the years as well as his experiences and memories as the favorite songwriter and arranger of some of the biggest names in the business.
Ocampo started out playing the piano and the organ as a child. This was followed by composing. His earliest hit songs were Maghihintay Ako Sa ‘yo recorded by Anthony Castelo, Hagkan popularized by Sharon Cuneta and Ewan by the Apo Hiking Society. Ewan, co-written with world-famous classical pianist Rowena Arrietta bagged Second Place at the Second Metro Manila Popular Music Festival in 1979.
Ocampo soon became a popular musical director and arranger but he kept up with his songwriting and has since then produced some of the biggest and most enduring hits in the area of Philippine pop music.
Among these are: Ikaw by Sharon Cuneta; Tell Me by Joey Albert; You are My Song by Regine Velasquez and Martin Nievera, Say That You Love Me by Basil Valdez, Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin by Joey Albert and Martin Nievera, Don’t Say Goodbye by Pops Fernandez, So Many Questions by Side A, Kahit Isang Saglit by Vernie Varga, Si Aida Si Lorna at si Fe by Marco Sison and many others.
