The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) has been the bastion of the country’s finest arts and culture and every leader of the premier institution has given her or his utmost contributions to the enhancement of its goals and objectives for the Filipino people to relish.

The passing of an arts technocrat of the Center is a big blow to the agency just like the demise of Nedy Tantoco, Rustan’s CEO, patroness of the arts, and former Board of Trustee of the CCP.

Nedy was one of the pillars of the CCP policymaking body as she worked hard to achieve her purpose of bringing quality artistic and cultural performances to the public.

CCP President Michelle Nikki Junia still grieved the death of Tantoco, one of her elder leaders at the Center.

Lagunense Michelle Nikki wrote a tribute to Nedy on her Facebook wall:

“It's important for me to share an inspiring woman I have had the privilege to work with in the CCP Board. She radiates beauty, calmness, passion, peace, and compassion for the arts and culture.
“Our dear Ms. Nedy Tantoco, we are grateful for your unconditional love and generosity for the arts. I remember you exhausting all your efforts to ensure the requirements for the Krystian Zimerman project were put in order. Despite being unable to finish all preparations on time, you still pushed and ensured the impossible became possible. Such courage and immense love for the Filipino people. You want the Filipino audience to experience the best artists in the world and nothing less!
“You always went to great lengths and exhausted your network to bring help to PPO, Opera productions, and other CCP Programs.
“You inspire us, the younger generation in the board, to offer the same amount of attention and love for the Filipino artists as you leave an indelible mark.
“You will always be in our hearts.
Enjoy the glorious music in the heavens!!!”
