The UP College of Music is presenting two concerts that demonstrate music-language diversity that fundamentally characterizes Philippine culture, a statement said.

The first will feature the UP Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Prof. Rayben Maigue, for an all-Filipino concert of "Pinoy Jazz" from the late 70s to present.

It will be on September 6, 6:30 p.m. at the Aberlardo Hall Auditorium.

The concert will be annotated by jazz historian Ritchie Quirino and will feature “works” by the best proponents in the genre in the country such as Matt Catingub, Jun Palacio, Domeng Valdez, Willy Yusi, Bobby Enriquez, Boy Palacio, Ritchie Quirino, and Angel Peña.

From jazz, the college will then celebrate hispanismo in Philippine culture through a concert featuring Philippine salon music from the 1860s onwards.

Dubbed "Tertulia sa Abelardo Hall," the concert will be on September 13 at 6:40 p.m. and will highlight popular music in history.

The statement said “popular music” referred to the music that was circulated among members of the piano-owning social class in 19th century urban Philippines.

"The development of national consciousness in late 19th century owed much to this group, i.e.,Filipino ilustrados (enlightened). They were intellectuals who exchanged ideas among themselves through print medium: the newspaper, books, and commodified printed sheet music of the past that the concert recreates in the present," it said.

It added that the event will showcase pieces for solo piano, duo, instrumental trios, songs poetry reading and dance by Prof. Augusto Espino, Jourdann Petalver, and a special appearance of young pianist Lorenzo Medel.

The college said Spanish refreshments will be served during intermission.

Tickets to both concerts are at P200 each. Attendees to the tertulia concert are requested to don on salon society Filipiniana attire.

For more details, they may call Josie Baradas at 929-6963 or 981-8500 loc. 2629.
