“CITY BAND to attract Tourists”

As a part of the effort to boost tourism in the City of Olongapo, Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. organized the Olongapo City Marching Band (OCMB).

This consist of teenagers from Olongapo with ages 13 to 19, who had no idea on how to play instruments from the start. “They have zero knowledge when we started the OCMB but in two months time, we were able to teach them on how to play instruments and even on how to read notes” said Marlon Bravo, the OCMB Coordinator. These youngsters are now beneficiaries of scholarships from the City.

The Olongapo City Marching Band recently participated in the Peace and Order Parade, Independence Day and other programs and events in the city.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. is determined to improve the state of Tourism in the City. “This would attract investors and eventually create jobs for Olongapeños” Gordon added.
