Madz leads August line-up of `Art 2 Art'
The multi-awarded Philippine Madrigal Singers – popularly known as the “Madz” – ushers in another round of interesting episodes on Art 2 Art for the month of August.
In the episode airing on August 4, Art 2 Art host Lisa Macuja welcomes the Madrigals, led by choir master Mark Anthony Carpio, as they hold a mini-concert of familiar favorites. The group, which is marking its 50th anniversary this year, also shares news about the first Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival to be held in the Philippines August 7 to 10, in honor of their founder, the late National Artist Andrea Veneracion.
On August 11, for Art 2 Art's Buwan ng Wika episode, poet/ scriptwriter Jerry Gracio shares his insights on writing – whether it is for a script for a teleserye or a film or for a short story or a poem. A commissioner for the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino, he also discusses some of the current issues relating to language.
On August 18, musical theater artists Jett Pangan and Kakki Teodoro talk about Pamana, a docu-musical tribute to Ninoy and Cory Aquino, where they play lead roles. The play is written by Rody Vera, with music by Fr. Manoling Francisco and Ryan Cayabyab.
On August 25, Davao-based jewelry and furniture designer Ann Pamintuan relates how, even without formal training in design, she was able to help put the Philippines in the international map with creations using indigenous materials.
