Gabi ng Musikang Pilipino on August 18

Don’t you miss this one peeps. It’s your chance to get some culture other than agri-culture. It’s on August 18, 7PM at the Juan C. Angara Multi-Purpose Center aka Baler Sports Complex. I’ll definitely be there as this will be my first time to see the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra. Rakenrol!

from the CCP website:

As part of the year long celebration of the quadricentennial of Baler, Quezon, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), the Office of Senator Edgardo J. Angara, and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), in cooperation with the Municipality of Baler and the Province of Aurora, present a special performance entitled GABI NG MUSIKANG PILIPINO on August 18, 2009 at 7:00pm to be held at the Don Juan C. Angara Multi-Purpose Center, Baler, Quezon.

The concert consists of original Filipino music from the Spanish colonial period to the present, to be performed by some of the country’s most outstanding Filipino musical artists–Rachelle Gerodias (soprano), Ervin Lumauag (tenor), Isay Alvarez (vocalist), Bo Cerrudo (vocalist), the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group and the UP Singing Ambassadors under Ed Manguiat, choirmaster, together with the country’s national orchestra, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) under the baton of Maestro Agripino Diestro. Promising artists from Baler will also be featured such as the Baler Pangkat Kawayan, Aurora Performing Arts Group, Baler National High School Choir, and Baler youth and children’s choirs.

Directed by Felix Monino Duque, the performance will be a first of its kind in Baler and is expected to be viewed not only by the people of Baler, but also people from the neighboring towns and municipalities of Aurora province.

  4. Aryo ay bakit naman ganyan, maraming beses nang sinabi ni Kidlat na wala nang Baler, QUEZON. Baler, AURORA na nuun pang panahun ni Gov. Etcubanez. Tinitikis mu bagang ibalik ang Baler, Quezon? Pero palagay ku typo laang anu?

  5. arre, ang ineemphasize nga ay ang backlog ng Cultural Center of the Philippines sa pagtingin sa atin bilang Aurora ay. Na 30 taon na higit na ng maging probinsya tayo at hanggang ngayon ang nangunguna sa programang kultural ay…

    🙂

  6. ay oo nga naman pala, sorry kabayang tikis.

    nawaglit ta sa isip ku yung first line ng note mu…”30 years backlog” at ang natanim sa kukote ku ay ang kamalian sa 2nd paragraph na de mu naman sinabi kundi galing sa CCP article. wala tang “…” ay. pero, talagang mea culpa.
