The sanctuary at the First Parish Church of Bedford was filled with Philippine music on a warm Saturday.in May Hosted by Elsa Christiansen-Janairo (Instructional Program Director) and the team of mentors, she introduced the beginners group called the “Hele Class”. They performed “bahay kubo” and “ako ay Pilipino”. Aside from Jaereyn Javier, the buzz was all about the performance by a mother and son duo. Agnes Quisumbing and her son Lucas Villasenor proudly strummed serious banduria side by side. The rest of the afternoon soiree included the older classes (Korido, Talindaw and IP’s seasoned performers, the Kundiman group). It was inspiring to see many fresh talent on stage. The beat goes on at Iskwelahang Pilipino rondalla.
