Prize-winning tenor, clarinetist to hold Catanduanes concert, June 30 | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

Tenor Nomher Nival,  clarinetist Andrew Constantino and pianist Gabriel Paguirigan will perform at the Catanduanes State University Auditorium in Virac, Catanduanes, on June 30 at 7 p.m.

Sponsored by the Catanduanes Tribune, Catanduanes State University and ARDCI Corporate Inn, the concert will be the first on the island for Constantino, top winner of the National Music Competitions for Young Artists. He will play three pieces inspired by “La Traviata,” “Rigoletto” and do a transcription of the aria “O mio babbino caro.”

A student of the University of Santo Tomas Conservatory of Music, Constantino told the Inquirer that understanding music would result in better appreciation of it.

“As a performer, you should know how to interpret the piece itself and besides the analytical part, you must know also how this beautiful art form is produced by heart and soul. Without this input, there it’s not enjoyable.”

He added classical music has changed his perspective and attitude on music in general. “My advocacy now is to make more young people aware of its potential. They should strive to understand it. Watch concerts and explore it and, in the process, appreciate how it works and change your perspective.”

The concert is free to all music teachers, students and plain music lovers from the 11 towns of Catanduanes. CONTRIBUTED
