Raffy and I had a rare treat last week, we got all dressed up and trooped to Meralco Theater to attend a concert by International Classical Guitarist Berta Rojas.
We arrived 30 minutes before the event started. I am so glad Raffy and I decided to dress up since everyone in attendance were dressed up. We got our special seats c/o Mommy Blogger Em who unfortunately can`t make it. No ticket for us but we are assisted by the usher to our seats.
We were n the lodge area almost the center, we were not allowed to take flash photos, sorry about these photos from my phone. The program began with two open acts. All Pinay Classical Guitar trio Triple Fret followed by Ramoncito Carpio.
Berta Rojas` performance was divided into two parts. She played the music of Manuel Ponce of Mexico in Part 1 and for Part 2, she featured Vincent Linsey- Clark from England and Augusto Barrios. It was an interesting experience for me since I mostly hung around Rockers all my life, the guitar can totally be exhilarating. My favorite part was when she did an encore, by performing Pilita Corrales` Gaano ko Ikaw Kamahal. The encore received a standing ovation.
As we stepped outside the theater, we were given these freebies. Thanks Mommy Bloggers Philippines and Mommy Blogger Em Alcantara for the opportunity to instill a bit of culture to my 14 year old. She found the experience interesting enough to read about it.
Until next time Sweeties!
