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 in Solaire Resort on February 4 & 5, 2023.
Produced by Viva Live Inc., in cooperation with Solaire Resorts Entertainment City, Composer Ka Lang stars Ocampo and features famous artists who will perform his hit songs.
These are Sharon Cuneta, Basil Valdez, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Marco Sison, Katrina Velarde, Janine Tenoso, Lyca Gairanod, and Jim Paredes & Boboy Garrovillo of the APO Hiking Society on February 4 & 5; Zsa Zsa Padilla and Sarah Geronimo on February 4; Regine Velasquez on February 5 and other surprise guests.
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 music 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 Martin Nievera, Say That You Love Me by Basil Valdez, Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin by Joey Albert, Don’t Say Goodbye by Pops Fernandez, So Many Questions by Side A, Kahit Isang Saglit by Vernie Varga, Si Aida Si Lornat si Fe by Marco Sison, Babalik Ka Rin by Gary Valenciano, Closer You And I by Gino Padilla and many others.
