Drunken Poetry Night 9 presents Scorpio Nights poetry reading

Ikaw ba ay nalulungkot, walang makausap? Nanlalamig mag-isa sa ilalim ng kumot? 

Halika, sama-sama tayong magpainit sa susunod na Linggo, ika-29 ng Nobyembre.

Hulihin, ang pang-aakit sa mga kataga. 

Tikman, ang tutukso ng iyong libido sa entablado. 

Abutin, ang rurok ng ligaya kasiping ng mga makatang nagbabaga at handang maglabas sa kanilang pagbasa. Sana ikaw rin ay maglabas ng… alam mo na. 

Magdala lamang ng tulang uudyok sa mga nakikinig na maghubad ng…kaluluwa.

Aantayin kita…bagong ligo…at nananabik…

To be premiered in this concert are two concertos for guitar and piano, the first movement of El Alevin by Eduardo Angulo (1954- ) and Concerti Métis by Roland Dyens (1955- ), and a few excerpts of Platero Y Yo, a collection of compositions for narrator and guitar, by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895-1968).

Mr. Demetillo, one of the Philippines’ leading classical guitar performers and teachers, has been teaching at the UP College of Music since 1980 and at the Asian Institute for Liturgical Music. He has given master classes, serves as an examiner for different schools, and has performed in various parts of the world. In the Philippines, he averaged 50 concerts a year. 

Ms. Silvestre has degrees in Musicology (BM, cum laude) and Spanish (M.A.) from the from UP Diliman. She also obtained a Diploma de Esapñol como Lengua Extranjera from the Univesity of Salamanca, Spain. She is currently working on her PhD in Philippine Studies. 

Ms. Gonzales obtained her Bachelor of Music degree Major in Piano (magna cum laude) under Prof. Augusto Espino from the UP College of Music. She completed her Master’s Degree in Piano Performance also from UP under internationally multi-awarded Filipino concert pianist Prof. Jovianney Emmanuel Cruz. At present, she is an Assistant Professor of piano at the same college where she graduated.
