I caught the matinee performance of the Capital Youth Chamber Orchestra today at the Luce Auditorium in Silliman. The performers were quite young, mostly middle school students. But some of them had been playing for six to seven years.
They played selections from various eras: Baroque, Romantic, Modern, and International. A bit of jazz and some folk music. Quite a pleasure, really.
The group was composed of two-and-a-half first violins, two-and-a-half second violins, two violas, a cello, and a bass.
Two hours worth of soothing chamber music. All for the low price of P50.
Who says there's nothing going on in Dumaguete?
