Memorabilia and artifacts from the history of Filipino music will now be collected and preserved in the digital world.
With OPM Archive Foundation, narratives, photographs, music sheets, and press releases from the '60s to present time will be compiled and digitalized for music research and study for future generations.
It was originally planned to be housed at the Filipinas Heritage Library, but due to the global coronavirus pandemic, has taken another direction to go digital. The collection of physical copies will proceed as soon as the quarantine period comes to an end.
The OPM Archive Foundation is currently run by Moy Ortiz (President), Krina Cayabyab (Vice President), Dinah Remolacio (Treasurer), and Chevy Salvador (Secretary). The launch of the archive is brought to you by the founding members of Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM), including Celeste Legaspi with Girlie Rodis, Tats Rejante Manahan, and Lyca Benitez Brown.
The digital collection of the archive is now available for viewing at opmarchive.com.
