Pianist Cristine Coyiuto, her flutist daughter Caitlin Alisa, an d guest flutist Yuko Enomoto will perform in “An Evening of Flute and Piano Music” on June 29, 7 p.m., at the Chapel of the Forgiving Lord, Tuloy Sa Don Bosco Street Children Village, corner Zapote Road and San Jose Village, in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
Cristine and Caitlin have performed in Manila, Cebu, Bacolod, Dumaguete, Alabang, Lake Placid and at the Zankel Hall in New York.
Last season, critic Antonio Hila noted the “sterling world-premier performance” of Josefino Chino Toledo’s new work “Psst!” composed for Cristine and Caitlin.
Cristine trained at Santa Isabel College in Manila and the Juilliard School in New York.
Caitlin made her orchestral debut at the age of 14, performing the Poulenc Flute Sonata, with Helen Quach conducting the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.
Caitlin just finished her freshman year at Wellesley College in Massachusetts and currently studies flute with Kathy Boyd and Linda Toote.
She was the principal flutist of the Brandeis Wellesley Orchestra and has participated in the Wellesley College Chamber Concert Series.
Enomoto has taught Caitlin for the past five years, and is considered as one the most outstanding flutists in Japan today.
Her concerts in Japan and France have earned her the reputation of “having a genuine sound and speed” in the French tradition of flute playing.
Enomoto studied with Shigenori Kudo and Claudine Cloutour (both students of the famed Jean-Pierre Rampal) at the renowned Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris where she received the “Diplome Superieure de Concertiste de Flute.”
She was also awarded the “Premier Prix in Chamber Music” from the Conservatoire Municipale de Paris.
She took further studies with Emmanuel Pahud, Philippe Bernold, Maxence Larrieu, and Vincent Lucas.
Caitlin, Yuko, and Cristine will perform works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Philippe Gaubert, Bohuslav Martin, Carl Reinecke, Kazuo Fukushima, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Franz Doppler.
Ralph Hoffmann’s new work for solo flute and choir will be premiered by Caitlin, the Tuloy Children’s Choir and Novo Concertante.
The concert will benefit of the orphans and abandoned children at the Tuloy Sa Don Bosco Street Children Village in Alabang, Muntinlupa.
