Now on its fourth year, Tricks and Musical Treats will take its audience to a "Journey to the Kingdom of Books," featuring an afternoon concert with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Herminigildo Ranera.

The Philippine orchestra, fresh from their international stint at the Asia Week 2018 in Japan, will perform a selection of popular classical masterpieces made for children's ears including Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Third Movement), Brahm's Hungarian Dances 5 and 6, Chabrier's Spanish Rhapsody and other surprise numbers.

One of the highlights will be the Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, a 'symphonic fairy tale for children' where the narrator tells a children's story, while the orchestra illustrates it with different instruments, representing characters in the story. It is Prokofiev's most frequently performed work, and one of the most frequently performed works in the entire classical repertoire all over the world.

Pre-concert activities will include the musical instruments petting zoo at the lobby of Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater), where children can try their hands in playing different musical instruments with a mini-tutorial from members of PPO. There will also be storytelling sessions by theater actress Liesl Batucan, with Blanche, as well as Trick or Treats at the Main Theater lobby.
