Jhay Layson, a fashion entrepeneur, will be joining the Elites Model Management Acting & Modelling Workshop which will start on January 9, and every Saturdays and Sundays thereafter. Mr. Lhayson will be teaching the Modelling exercises of the said workshop.

“I feel honored that he readily agreed my invitation”, Mr. Martin Martin, the Godfather of Elites Models, said to a blogger. “Aside from being my friend, Mr. Layson is also an expert in Modelling techniques, especially the Catwalk and proper walking in the ramp. He will be teaching for one whole day in the 10-day-session of the workshop that starts on January 9 and every weekends after that.”

Aside from Mr. Layson, Paul Dominic Aquino and Aljon Salonga, two of the most prominent and successful Elites models will also be joining the workshop- especially the Acting Workshop exercises. Paul Jansen ‘PJ’ Ong, the newest Elites hearthrob is also excited to join the Acting Workshop. Aside from PJ, Aljon and Paul, Elites latest discoveries- Ms. Patricia Carriedo and Mr. Jules Guiang- who are both successful already in their hosting and modelling fields, are expected to join,too. Another one is newcomer Reggie Musico, and also the grand daughter of veteran radio icon Tessie Lagman- in person of Tisha Almirez.

“And I would like to add, the beautiful and handsome fans of Nikki Co- the Niksters- are all joining the Acting and Modelling workshop, too”, Mr. Martin added. “They simply want to learn how to act and model. And I am happy they are supporting this Elites Acting & Modelling workshop of ours.”

Let’s all welcome the participants of The Elites Acting & Modelling Workshop with a big hug. They are the bright, new stars of the future. And surely, they’ll all shine bright…. SOON!

freshters celebrates their christmas get-together with their idols the freshmen and rocco nacino…

Nabuo ang Freshters taong 2013 because of Cortneygene Asunsion, and later on, nu’ng mag-put-up siya ng FB Fan Page ng Freshmen, naging co-admin niya si Ms. Cheska Manlapaz, na siyang pangkasalukuyang Presidente ng Freshters Fans Club.

Nag- start ‘yung Freshters nu’ng mapanood sila ni Cortney sa late-night TV show na Walang Tulugan ni German Moreno sa channel 7. Magmula nuon ay humanga na si Cortney sa nasabing grupo.Tapos, si Cheska naman, nakilala niya ang Freshmen sa isang big event sa may  World Trade Center sa Pasay City- ito ang event na P-POP REVOLUTION. Hanggang sa naging super-active na rin si Cheska sa grupong Freshters.

 Mas lalong lumago ang Freshters in the past two years at dahil na din sa dami ng mga naging shows and gigs ng Freshmen sa iba’t ibang lugar, mas lalo silang nakilala at sumikat. In fact, nakapag-record na rin sila ngayon ng sarili nilang awitin sa Ivory Records and it was released and launched in early part of the year 2015.

Heto presently ang limang administrative officers ng Freshters Fans Club: Cortneygene Asunsion,  Cheska Manlapaz, Lheslie De Guia, Joana Palanog and Inah Capistrano.

 At ngayong heto na ang 2016, malapit na ring mag-tatlong taon ang Freshters fans club ng Freshmen na halos may 2,000 members na all-over the country. Yung 2,000, iyon ang mga active members lang. Pero sa mga Facebook “likes” and “followers” nila, talagang sobrang libo-libo na, at karamiha’y mga taga-Borongan, Samar (na hometown ng road manager nilang si Arthy AC). Sobrang napamahal kasi ang mga taga-Borongan sa Freshmen, dahil sa tuwing may kalamidad sa lugar nila, laging naroroon ang Freshmen para dumamay sa kanila, tumulong at, ang pasayahin sila.

Nitong nakaraang December 27, 2015, Sunday, ay nagkaroon ng very intimate na Christmas get-together party event ang mga Freshters na ginanap sa Rufo’s Famous Tapa Restaurant (sa may Timog Avenue branch) na pag-aari ng aktor na si Rocco Nacino at ng brother nitong si Kyle. Naku naman, talagang kay saya-saya nu’ng hapon na iyon. Kumpleto lahat ang Freshmen para pasayahin ang kanilang fans- sina Sam Ayson, Levy Montilla, Derick Gernale, Patrick Abeleda at Thirdy Casas. Talagang nakipag-bonding-to-death ang mga ito sa mga piling-pili na mga fans na nakadalo sa event na iyon. Siyempre, kumanta rin ang Freshmen which they dedicated mga fans na nagsidalo that day.

Present din siyempre ang manager ng Freshmen na si Bob Nazareno, at ang road manager na si Arthy AC. At naging very special guest nila ang popular actor na si Rocco Nacino, kasama ang mabait nitong mommy na si Mrs. Linda Nacino. Ginawa ito ni Rocco dahil isa rin sa mga fans niya si Lheslie de Guia na officer ng Freshters at fan din ng ng Freshmen. Kaya si Lheslie na rin mismo ang personal na nag-imbita kay Rocco na dumalo sa event nila at hindi naman ito humindi sa naging hiling ni Lheslie. Unang nakasama ni Rocco ang Freshmen sa pelikulang San Pedro Calungsod: The Movie nuong taong 2013, dahil kasama sa cast ng said movie ang lahat ng Freshmen (na nagkaroon ng mga bit roles sa pelikulang iyon)- sina Sam, Derick, Thirdy, Levy at Patrick.

“Sa ngayon po, marami kaming mga plano sa fans club naming Freshters, pero wala pang finalizations as of now, kaya hindi pa po namin puwedeng i-reveal”, sabi pa ni Cheska Manlapaz, Presidente ng Freshters Fans Club. “At sa ngayon, sumusuporta kami sa Freshmen sa pagiging Ambassadors of Goodwill nila ng Children of HOPE Foundation. We will support them always in all their undertakings. Lalo na sa mga gigs and concerts nila.”

More power to Freshters! And we love you, FRESHMEN!!!!

CCP MET OPERA IN HD PRESENTS TOSCA ON JAN 12, 2016

MetOpera-ToscaTOSCATOSCA2

GIACOMO Puccini’s fast-moving operatic thriller Tosca will be the third offering of the CCP’s Metropolitan Opera in HD on January 12, 2016 at Greenbelt 3 cinemas.

Tosca’s exceptional cast is led by Patricia Racette who portrays the tempestuous diva Floria Tosca in this production by Luc Bondy.  Roberto Alagna sings Tosca’s lover, the painter Cavaradossi, and George Gagnidze is the corrupt, lustful Scarpia.  Riccardo Frizza conducts Puccini’s sweeping, dramatic tale of murder, lust, and political intrigue. 

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera the Bayerische Staatsoper and the Teatroalla Scala, Tosca was featured in the Met Opera’s 2013-2014 season and transmitted live worldwide on October 29, 2013 in more than 2,000 movie theaters around the world as part of the Met Opera Live in HD Series.

Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles.  But these same aspects have also made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination.

The CCP’s Met Opera in HD series features screenings of the latest operatic productions of the Metropolitan Opera in New York through High-Definition digital technology.

Other productions scheduled for screening at Greenbelt 3 cinemas for 2016 are:   Iolanta/Bluebeard’s Castle (Peter Tchaikovsky/Bela Bartok) on February 9, 2016; Carmen (Georges Bizet) on March 8, 2016; The Merry Widow (Franz Lehár) on April 12, 2016; and Macbeth (Giuseppe Verdi) on May 10, 2016.

For more information, please call Greenbelt 3 cinemas Customer Service Hotline: 757-7883 or CCP Sales and Promotions at 832-3706; e-mail address:  ccpsalesandpromo@gmail.com.

GERALD SANTOS: ISANG PAGBABALIK-TANAW…

gerald: isang pagbabalik-tanaw
gerald: isang pagbabalik-tanaw

Minsan, may mga bagay-bagay na talagang sadyang mahiwaga. Mga bagay na umaalinsunod sa mapagbirong talsik ng alon sa baybay-dagat… O, ng mga dahong tinatangay lamang ng mga hampas ng hangin…

Nakita ko noon ang isang batang-bata pa na singer, ang pangalan niya ay Gerald Santos. Katatapos pa lamang noon ng stageplay niyang “Sino Ka Ba, Jose Rizal” sa Meralco Theater. Isang dulang nagmula sa Gantimpala Theater Foundation. Hayun si Rald (Gerald), bumababa mula sa hagdanan ng teatro upang lumapit sa mga media people at mga fans. Nakangiti siya. Mapupula ang mga pisngi. At mukhang anghel sa aming paningin.

Kasama namin noon ang magandang aktres sa teatro na si Ms. Christine Joy Mangahis. At ito ang nagpakilala sa amin kay Rald.

“Gerald, siya si Robert Silverio, ang beteranong writer na blogger na rin ngayon”, buong kasiyahang nasambit pa ni Christine kay Rald. “Inimbita ko siya dito sa dula natin. Nais ka niyang makilala.”

Isang napakagandang ngiti ang ipinukol ni Rald sa blogger. Kinamayan niya ito ng mahigpit, sabay sabing: “Salamat po sa pagpunta at sa panonood sa dula namin. Natutuwa po ako’t nadito ka ngayon. Kumusta po?”, anya pa.

Ang oras ay tila tumigil nu’ng mga sandaling iyon. Parang ang lahat ay nanatili lamang sa kani-kanilang mga kinalalagyan. At ang blogger na kausap ni Rald, tila nawala sa panahon at sa kasalukuyan…..

Lumipas ang mga araw, linggo at buwan. Naging kaibigan ng blogger na iyon si Rald, kasama ang mabait nitong manager na si Mr. Cocoy Ramilo. Nakapanayam niya ito ng matagal sa isang steakhouse sa may Timog Avenue. At doon na nga tunay na nag-umpisa ang isang matibay na friendship sa singer na aktor na rin ngayon.

Ilang major concerts ang lumipas sa loob ng tatlong taon na friendship namin kay Rald. Pero sadyang ang guhit ng tadhana na nililikha ng mga kamay ng Nasa Itaas ay kakaiba. Isang Santo, isang Pilipinong Santo ang nakalaan na gampanan ni Rald. Hindi lang isang beses, kundi dalawang beses – sa dalawang magkaibang dula at dalawang magkaibang theater groups. At doon, nakita namin ang tunay na dahilan kung bakit. Tila ata kaya namin naging kaibigan si Rald ay dahil na rin kay San Pedro na madalas na naming napapanaginipan mula pa nuong bata pa kami….

At ngayon, mas lumalawak pa ang ibayong partisipasyon ni Rald sa larangan ng Sining. Pagkatapos ng maraming concerts at theater performances- nakita ni Rald ang tunay na magpapasaya sa kanya. ANG PAG-ARTE.

Oo, mismong inamin ni Rald sa amin na mas sumasaya siya ngayon sa pag-arte sa harap ng kamera. Magmula nu’ng gawin niya ang indie film na “Memory Channel” (mula sa direksyon ni Rayn brizuela at isasali sa New Wave Category ng darating na Metro Manila Film fest), natuklasan ni Rald ang isa pang bahagi ng kanyang pagkatao. Ang pagiging isang AKTOR.

Abangan si Gerald Santos sa bagong mundong gagalawan na niya. At tiyak niyan, mas lalong darami ang hahanga sa pagiging aktor niya. Ngayon pa lang, may kasunod na ang proyekto niya sa pag-arte. Siya rin ang napiling gumanap bilang Emilio Jacinto, ang ating Pilipinong bayani sa panahon ng Katipunan, sa isang documentary film. Natapos na rin ni Rald ang shooting sa pelikulang ito. At lubos niyang pinabilib ang kanyang direktor sa pelikulang ito.

SI GERALD SANTOS, ISANG PAGBABALIK TANAW….

NGAYON AT MAGPAKAILANMAN.
