Philippine Music and Culture Summit 2024

Updated: Jun 4

I am deeply honored to have been selected as one of the keynote speakers at the 2024 Philippine Music & Culture Summit in Dumaguete City, the land of gentle people. During the event, I had the privilege of delivering my presentation titled "CounterteKnow," delving into the rich history and remarkable versatility of the countertenor voice, and its profound influences on the Philippine choral scene. I was privileged to share the stage with national artists and distinguished figures in the music industry.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Male Ensemble Philippines, who accompanied me during the concluding segment of my presentation. Together, we presented a madrigal, transporting the audience back to the Renaissance period when countertenors held significant prominence.

Special thanks to Sir Diomar Abrio and the Siliman University Culture and Arts Council.
