What do you get when you mix captivating a cappella, 90s hip hop vibes, and a strong Filipino heritage? The one and only The Filharmonic.

This talented musical group got their big break from the hit NBC show, “The Sing-Off” back in 2013. Since then, they haven’t slowed down. They’ve been a part of a variety of performances, including a spot in Pitch Perfect 2.


Now, you can catch them in their exclusive interview for Modern Celebrities, marking the beginning of the new Network Radio show.

Modern Celebrities showcases talented social media stars in dynamic interviews with host Nicole Ngo. She finds a personal and genuine connection with each subject.

Nicole and The Filharmonic guys discuss their beginnings and future plans as a group in the outstanding interview.

They are also challenged to a fun “10 Second Song Challenge” and perform a beautiful cover of “Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber.

The Filharmonic found one another through collective singing competitions in college. They put together their talented skills and common Filipino heritage to create the group we love today.

This group consists of six outstanding and charismatic guys that are passionate about performing and creating attractive sounds. The hypnotic vocalists include VJ Rosales, Joe Caigoy, Trace Gaynor and Barry Fortgang. Jules Cruz rocks bass and Niko Del Rey produces the rhythmic beatboxing.


Pure energy and love exude off of each one of these guys. Just watch a few of their videos and you can see for yourself why they are such a standout group. They come across as personable, like the kind of guys you can hang out with and have a great time.

What makes them so special are the unique tones from each member that come together in a beautiful way. In every performance, they showcase smooth rhythms all while maintaining their distinct Filipino flair.
