Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a special evening of music and dinner for friends and lovers with premiere classical balladeer Bo Cerrudo and powerful tenor Robert Sena in “Valentine Serenades” happening on February 13, 2014 8:00 pm at the Grand Ballroom, Solaire Resort and Casino. Accompanying our two world-class acts are Aicelle Santos, Rafa Siguion-Reyna and ensemble from Philharmonic Orchestra.
Experience a Valentine’s show to remember written by Bibeth Orteza and musical direction by Maestro Rodel Colmenar. As the show promises a blend of classical, OPM favorites as “Kundiman”, Broadway melodies and smooth jazz, this special evening will also feature musical performance styles of Richard Merk and Rachelle Anne Wolfe.
Bo Cerrudo released two albums, namely: an eponymous debut effort which spawned the hit remake “Pag Tumatagal Lalong Tumitibay”, and the 90’s ballroom dancing-inspired Retro Dancing. It was in musical stage plays where his discipline and spontaneity were honed and polished. He was able to snag plum roles in major musicals, among them Wang Ta in “Flower Drum Song”, Tony in “West Side Story”, Rama in “Rama Hari” and the Manila run of “Miss Saigon”, to name a few. He dazzled foreign audiences via sell-out concerts in the US, Asia, Middle East and Europe, even performing on several occasions as ambassador of goodwill for the Philippine Department of Tourism. His series, “Cerrudo: Classico” is the longest-running concert series of its kind, having staged over 100 shows since its inception in 2005.
