Cultural Center of the Philippines' President Michelle Nikki Junia believes that the progress of national as well as regional artistic and cultural pursuits can also be achieved through the responsive and decisive leadership of any local government.

That is why Michelle Nikki has been very passionately active and interactive with the arts and culture projects of any Local Government Unit (LGU).

Junia doesn't mind going the extra mile to officially and personally support outreach programs, not only, but especially CCP activities to bring the arts, one of them classical music or fusion of it to the grassroots.

It is in this context that Nikki has been continuing what her predecessors like Nick Lizaso had done like bringing to the grassroots the country's premier orchestra, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO).

Michelle Nikki would do just like that not only as part of her official functions and duties to go as far as the remotest rural areas like Bocaue just to get the feel of how the people in the communities would appreciate pure classics of Chopin or Tchaikovsky and the contemporary music of Ryan Cayabyab or Celeste Legaspi.

Junia was touched by the initiative of the Bocaue LGU in Bulacan.

This gesture assured her that other LGUs would follow suit not only through PPO shows but other artists' performances as well of various forms.

In Nikki's courtesy visit to the San Pedro City Hall recently, she was confident that its LGU would work side-by-side with her in the enhancement of arts and culture in the Sampaguita country.

What more if Michelle Nikki initiates a partnership with the leaders in her backyard?

Junia loves the San Pedro cultural traditions as she wants to preserve them like the heritage of sampaguita growing and garland making at this time the species of the national flower in the city are almost endangered because land patches for sampaguita are already converted into subdivisions or high-rise buildings.

On her Facebook wall where Michelle Nikki posted her photos and captions of her visit to the Office of Mayor Art Mercado, the CCP President was overwhelmed by Mercado's enthusiasm for heritage and cultural conservation and the commitment and dedication to the city's artistic and cultural prime movers.

"Supporting my hometown with its young passionate cultural workers & Mayor Art Mercado of San Pedro City," she said with a smile.
"Kultura ng lahat. Para sa lahat!!!" the CCP head exclaimed in her socmed spaces
