The 47th Cultural Season Launches with Pianist Christine Coyiuto and Flurist Caitlin Alisa Coyiuto in Concert
Acclaimed pianist Christine Coyiuto comes back to the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium stage, this time with her flutist daughter Caitlin Alisa, for a concert that is the also the inaugural show of the Silliman University Cultural Affairs Committee’s 47th season.
The concert, which is part of a Visayan tour, is slated on Sunday, 28 June 2009. The show will be preceded with a launch of the CAC’s cultural season’s slate at 6 p.m. at the Luce Auditorium foyer, and the concert will start promptly at 8 p.m.
The duo had wowed Manila audiences previously with a critically lauded concert at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The Philippine Star’s Rosalindo L. Orosa has written of that event: “Pianist Coyiuto was the epitome of elegance, refinement, sensitivity, and restraint, infusing it with the subtlest nuances. Flutist Caitlin, young though she is, brilliantly rendered, her tones full, firm, assured. Her vibrant performance was an eloquent augury of the brightest future.”
The Coyiutos will be performing Franz Joseph Haydn’s Capriccio in G Major, Hob. VII:I, Felix Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words, Cecile Chaminade’s Concertino for Flute and Piano, Op. 107, and Claude Bolling’s Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio (with Joi R. Magadia on bass and Jorge F. San Jose on drums).
Tickets for the show are available at P200, P400, and P500.
Tickets and season passes for all other Luce Auditorium shows produced by the CAC are now available at the College of Performing Arts office, the Luce Auditorium office, and at the theater lobby before the show. For inquiries and ticket reservations, please call (035) 422-6002 loc. 520.
What a potentially lovely and entertaining evening! I say potentially because I can't watch the concert as my notes and slides for tomorrow's lecture on Membrane Potentials and Action Potentials, is nowhere near completion yet.
