The National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) supported the year-long centennial commemoration of National Artist Jose M. Maceda, which ended and happened on his 101st birth anniversary on Wednesday, 31 January 2018 at the Abelardo Hall, UP Diliman, Quezon City.

The centennial event dubbed as "Maceda100" was a series of special events in celebration of Jose M. Maceda's 100th birth year which officially kicked off on his 100th birthday on January 31, 2017.  It was formally closed with a Philippine debut of his two latest compositions, Sujeichon (2004) and Accordion and Mandolin with a Special Orchestra (2003).

Dr. Maceda was an NRCP regular member and Achievement awardee in the Division of Humanities in 1987. He was also a composer, a professor, and an active ethnomusicologist who was conferred the title as National Artist in Music in 1997. NRCP's ties with UP Center for Ethnomusicology traces back to the many productive years of Dr. Maceda as pioneer researcher of Filipino ethnolinguistic groups. The closing event was attended by NRCP officials.
