Touringkitty music: Ave Maria by Caccini

So happy to be back on track! This year started with my well-received performance as Sisa in Noli Me Tangere the Opera (read a review of my performance here). Recently, I had several singing engagements as a soloist. #goals for a soprano mom like me. Here is one of those performances, which I really truly treasure. And made […]

Manila Workshops: Youtube 101: Creating and Monetizing

Are you a frequent Youtube user? Like me, when I research music, or watch How It’s Made videos, my go-to site is Youtube. I have my own channel (CLICK LINK HERE!) where I gather my music and travel videos. Did you know you could earn whilst youtube-ing? Yes, yes, yes! And this workshop will show us just how. […]

Noli Me Tangere the Opera marks 60th year at CCP

Ten Days. Yes, we’re counting ten more days before the Opening Gala Night! Mixed emotions, just like Sisa, whose character I am playing, is what I feel, now that we’re stepping in the ten-day mark of the show. But more than that, it is the hard work and love, above all, that everyone has put […]

#TKEurope2015: Pasyon

What brought us to Europe is the invitation to the Barasoain Kalinangan Foundation, Inc. to perform for the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space. Held every four years, PQ as it is popularly called, gathers together artists from all ofer the world for an exhibition. Prague turns into a huge arts hub, literally, including […]

#TKEurope2015: How it came to be

Visiting Europe four times without worrying too much on airfare and accommodations was more like winning the lottery or a raffle. But this would not be possible, in my case, if it were not for the musical talent God gave me. And for that I am humbled, honored, privileged, and happy to share His music […]

The Nelly Miricioiu experience: Prelude

Excitement, trepidation, humbled. These three feelings rule over me right now, maybe until after all of this is done. Who would have thought that I would be part of this? BUT, before that, is her much-awaited one-night only Manila concert, which I hope you could all watch, too. Now, on to the lowdown of how and why I […]

Achieve a WAHMderful Life through this Workshop Series

I realized I have been working at home since college. Teaching voice and piano at our home gave me that confidence to be a teacher (and that extra school baon, too!). In the past years, I have dabbled in various work at home jobs: teaching music, writing, editing, social media management, choral arranging, blogging. Last year alone, […]

Manila Workshops partner with Touringkitty

Touringkitty and Manila Workshops are partners in learning!   I have attended several of their workshops in the past couple of years, and I don’t only learn in the workshops, they’re also a great way to build my network and look for possible job leads. This semi work at home momma has partnered with them, so you’ll […]

CCP Hands-on Choral Workshop 2014: Training ground of choral champions

Last October, I was fortunate to be part of the team of trainors for the CCP Hands-on Choral Workshop. The workshop is now on its 12th season, and has attracted choral groups and conductors from all over the Philippines as well as other countries. This year, we had a choir from Kuala Lumpur participating in […]

Touringkitty feature: Timelapse video of pregnancy

How did you document your pregnancy? I swear I cannot remember something really religious to document those nine months. Photos? Maybe once in a while, but not every month. Then I remembered, I started this blog the month before I gave birth, and have collected notes in a notebook which led to putting them online. […]
