Serenata: An Evening of String Music

I was invited today to watch a Christmas thanksgiving concert entitled Serenata held at the Laoag City Auditorium. This event was organized and presented by the two brother musicians John and Emyl Villanueva. They were conductors and instructors of the group who performed who call themselves The Cuerdas String Ensemble. They were composed of professionals, college, high school and elementary students. They played the violin and interpreted classical music and Christmas carols. This included pieces Ode to Joy, Payapang Daigdig, Canon in D Major, Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin, Ave Maria, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, Hark the Heral Angels Sing, Silent Night and So this is Christmas.
