Berta Rojas, a star in the international guitar community, will be gracing the Philippines for a 2 day concert. Ms. Rojas is Paraguay’s tourism ambassador where she is considered the most popular musician. Described by the Washington Post as “Guitarist extraordinaire,” she will be playing a classical repertoire with a taste of jazz and salsa.
Special guests for the Manila concert are Ramoncito Carpio, the Philippines internationally awarded classic guitarist and Triple Fret, an all-women classical-contemporary guitar trio composed of Marga Abejo, Jenny de Vera, and Iqui Vinculado.
The concert in Manila will be at 8 pm at the Meralco Theater, on the 15th of May. The concert in Cebu will be at Marcelo Fernan Hall in Lahug on the 17th of May. Organized by the Independent Philippine Art Ventures, Inc., and the Arts Council of Cebu Foundation.
This concert will be the classical guitar event of the year.
Prior to the concert, BERTA ROJAS will conduct a special MASTER CLASS on May 14, 2014 from 3-6 p.m. at Cedar Room, Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, the official residence of Rojas in Manila.
The master class will be open, free of charge, to six students and enthusiasts that qualify in a transparent and competitive process.
In a master class, open to a public audience, the student plays a chosen piece before a virtuoso. The latter evaluates technique, style, interpretation, posture. It is usually a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the student. Berta Rojas will spend 30 minutes with each participant. For further inquiries, please write Monch Carpio at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The campus networking for the events is spearheaded by the University of Santo Tomas Music Conservatory Student Council, under the leadership of Mary Rose Luzande.
