Erehwon Center for the Arts celebrates National Arts Month 2019

Erehwon Center for the Arts holds a month-long celebration of the culture and the arts this February.

In line with Erehwon Arts Council’s mission of consolidating the artistic and cultural talents of its members, five  artistic groups will be staging performances starting with a dance concert on Feb. 16 at 10 a.m., featuring joint performances by Erehwon Dance Scholars and the Erehwon Youth Rondalla Ensemble.

Comprised of a group of students from Bagong Silangan National High School and Batasan Hills National High School in Quezon City who passionately trained on folk dance and folk music, the dance concert promises to be a cultural fest, and a refreshing statement on how the Filipino youth are not only embracing, but even proudly promoting Filipino folk culture.

Erehwon Center for the Arts will also host a concert-lecture demonstration on Feb. 22 at 3 p.m., in partnership with the Fides Cuyugan Asensio Institute of Music and Arts (FCAIMA).

The newest addition to the Erehwon Art Council, FCAIMA brings in the passion and devotion of seasoned art practitioners in providing another platform to nurture and empower enthusiastic learners in the fields of music, dance and theatre.

Back-to-back with FCAIMA’s concert-lecture demo, Erehwon Jazz Orchestra and Erehwon Chorale collaborate in a musical concert on Feb. 23 at 3 p.m. The concert will combine the wide musical repertoire of the two artistic groups. It will definitely be a delight for musicians and music-lovers alike.

Visual arts enthusiasts are also in for a treat, as Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. marks the opening of “Karugtong,” a solo art exhibition by Heber Bartolome, featuring 45 of his paintings produced from 1982 to the present.

The exhibit, curated by fellow artist Augusto “Gus” Albor will run from Feb. 28 to Mar. 14, 2019 at Erehwon Center for the Arts’ Erehwon Atelier.
