My work "Magnifikat" reaches finals.

Congatulations to Rafael Miranda Huereca from Mexico for winning in the choir category of the composition competition.
1st movie stint
It was definitely odd to hear your voice as part of a film score in a movie. It actually lessens the eerieness and scare factor in a horror film. Haha. Special thanks to my good friend, film scorer par excellence, Von de Guzman for inviting me to sing some solo parts together with the Ateneo Chamber Singers in this successful
.Indie Film, Dementia

Swingle Singers performs my work
Starstrucked and amazed as
this 5-time Grammy Award winning group, Swingle Singers, performed my ararngement of Ili-Ili, a Visayan Folk Song during their visit in Manila September of 2013 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. It was a night to remember and a fitting advanced birthday gift for me. I am deeply humbled and overwhelmed. My deepest gratitude to all of you, Sara, Clare, Jo, Ed, Oli, Kevin, Cj and Hugh. Hope our paths cross again soon!

Look who I saw at the airport? Freshly landed from Singapore and the Swingles too, just landed from Indonesia.
Obama in Manila
Blessed, honoured, and Amazed.
"Thank you, thank you for that amazing number..." says the president of the United States as he shook my hands.
A very memorable night at the Presidential Palace.
Performed for the POTUS together with the
Philippine Madrigal Singers, Leo Valdez, Kuh Ledesma, Apl D' Ap, Bituin, AMP Band, Bayanihan Dance Troupe and Power Dance during his visit in Manila. Still in awe. How often do you get to hand shake two presidents-and one, being the most influential and powerful man in the world- in one night?!?
