The Abelardo Hall Concert Series, now on its 2nd season, comprises of monthly concerts that showcase the diversity of talents that are or have been part of the UP College of Music. The line up is a mix of genres and styles that is truly the mark of UP.
For season 2’s second offering, the UP College of Music and the UP College of Music Alumni Association, in cooperation with the Office of the Chancellor thru the Office for Initiatives in Culture and the Arts, proudly present: Ripieno Ensemble in “Kundiman Redux” on September 28, 2018, 7PM, featuring Joseph Emmanuel Hernandez (cello), Danelle May S.A. Dionisio (clarinet), John Owen Castro (flute), Sara T. Matsuura (piano), Pauline Arejola (soprano), Stefanie D. Quintin (soprano), Patricia Poblador (violin) and Alexander John L. Villanueva (conductor and artistic director).
