When I was young, I dreamed of becoming a concert pianist. I knew I was being prepared for it — performing for school programs and recitals.
Now that I am nurturing a very musically inclined daughter, who never sleeps at night unless she completes her “album” of songs to sing for us, her tired parents, I will make sure she gets her dream of becoming whoever she wants to be. And what mother would not want for her child to perform in the biggest stages in the country, even the world?
Jeline, Gabby, and Jimmy, young musicians, all in their teens, have just received a very wonderful yet daunting task — fill up the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo of the Cultural Center of the Philippines for a one night performance with no less than the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.
They were winners of the 2011 National Music Competition for Young Artists, or what is popularly known as NAMCYA. It’s like the “Palarong Pambansa” of musicians. One of their “prizes” is performing with a full orchestral accompaniment. And it will happen on August 2, 2012, 8:00PM at the CCP Main Theater.
It will be only one night, so please come and support these great talents.
Tickets to the concert are at P900, P700, P500 and P200 with 50% discount for students and 20% discount for senior citizens. For inquiries, please contact the CCP Box Office at 832-3704 and Ticketworld at 891-9999.

P.S. As you all know, I never became a concert pianist, but a choral singer, travelling and singing in big stages here and abroad I never even dreamed of as a child.
