Catch the artistry of FIlipino world-class talent Rogelio B. Peñaverde Jr. as this consummate crossover musician visits home in a featured performance on September 15 (Thursday), at the Main Theater Lobby of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
The cocktail reception is at 5:00pm while the show proper is scheduled at 6:30 p.m.
Entitled MINAMAHAL KITA: THE ART OF FILIPINO LOVE SONGS (A TRIBUTE TO THE 2022 NATIONAL ARTISTS), the show was conceptualized by Peñaverde and produced by the Friends for Cultural Concerns of the Philippines (FCCP) under the leadership of its current president, Martin Lopez.
It will also feature the following guest artists, most of whom are FCCP Scholars: Athena Macatangay (Soprano), Giuseppe Diestro (Cello), Kris Gonzales (Baritone), Lance Capitan (Guitar), Madeline Jane Banta (Piano), Myramae T. Meneses (Soprano) and Nathan Gemina (Piano).
Directed by Manolet Garcia, the ensemble will be performing Filipino love songs from both the classical and contemporary repertoire.
The gala is part of Peñaverde’s advocacy to present quality performances of Philippine music here and abroad that educate as much as they entertain.
Proceeds will go towards funding the tuition or travel expenses of the 26 FCCP scholars studying in local and foreign schools.
