Join us for a fun family event celebrating the rich culture of the Philippines through dramatic readings of beloved children's books with original music by Musica Reginae Productions.
Free to RSVP here!
The books are read by actors Bing Magtoto and Patrick Elizalde, and accompanied by live music composed by Melinda Faylor. Featuring stunning artwork by many Filipino artists, the artwork for each story will also be projected for the audience during the reading. The music for Sari-Sari Storybooks is inspired by the provinces of the Philippines in which all of the stories take place. The instrumentation is piano and electronics, including a variety of samples of Filipino instruments and other sounds inspired by the stories. Sari-Sari Storybooks are published and written by Christina Newhard, along with co-author Alyssa Sarmiento-Co and illustrators Jaypee Portez, Happy Garaje, and Robbie Bautista.
