“LAKBAY HARANA AT PILA, LAGUNA”
RESIDENTS of Pila in Laguna were enthralled by the various renditions of kundimans by soprano Myramae Meneses, tenor Arman Ferrer, pianist Agot Espino and the Kabataang Gitarista in a concert billed as Lakbay Harana held last May 18 at the historic Church of Pila. The said event, the first of a series of outreach concerts from May to November 2016, was made possible by the Cultural Center of the Philippines through its Cultural Exchange Department and the Tribung Pilipino Foundation.
The concert was staged through the partnership with the Shrine of San Antonio de Padua community. The Pila concert kicks off the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Diocese of San Pablo this year.
Lakbay Harana is an offshoot of a series of well attended concerts held in 2015 at the CCP’s Bulwagang Nicanor Abelardo (Main Theater Lobby) entitled Harana sa Dapit Hapon, also a joint undertaking of the CCP and the Tribung Pilipino Foundation (TPF). Lakbay Harana aims to promote and reawaken the public’s interest and appreciation (especially the young generation) for immortal kundimans, harana, balitaw, danza and unforgettable love songs by great Filipino composers. Noted classical singers and performers are featured in the outreach tour.
Succeeding concerts of the event will be held in Lipa City, Batangas on July 22, Vigan City, Ilocos Sur in September and Baler, Aurora in November. (Photo by Raul E. Asis)
