Gems of Music and Literature
“Gems of Music and Literature”
3rd presentation of the UPAA Carillon Concert Seasons
Thursday, October 27, 2016, 6:00 p.m.
at the UP Carillon Plaza, UP Diliman, Quezon City.
This is being staged by the UP Alumni Association (UPAA) and Beta Sigma Fraternity, in cooperation with the offices of the UP President, UPD Chancellor, UP Theater, and UP College of Music.
The concert will feature poetry-reading, singing and instrumental playing wherein the vocal artists give breath and life to the marriage of the written, sung and spoken word; and the instrumentalists – both alone and accompanying vocalization – air dulcet tones in melodic tributes to literary and musical greatness. The literary works will be masterpieces of prose, drama, poetry, and prayers from such writers and sources as William Shakespeare, National Artist for Literature NVM Gonzalez, National Hero Jose Rizal, as well as the Bible. The music will be from compositional titans like Giuseppe Verdi, Charles Gounod, Johann Sebastian Bach, Nicanor Abelardo, and Santiago Suarez.
