INTERNATIONALLY renowned cellist Thomas Demenga and former child piano prodigy Charisse Dumlao wowed the audience at Casa San Miguel’s recent Sunday’s Best presentation.
The duo’s appearance further affirms Casa San Miguel’s commitment to enable local music students, and the public, to witness, enjoy and learn from world-class artists.
Demenga, who hails from Switzerland, is an accomplished soloist, composer and teacher who has performed at important festivals around the globe and shared the stage with fellow big name musicians.
Dumlao started playing piano almost self-taught at the age of 4 in the small city of Tacloban, Leyte before moving to Manila where, at the age of 17, she studied Music at the University of Sto. Tomas.
She also underwent piano coaching under German trained pianist Peter Porticos and See Siang Womg in Switzerland.
Since 1980, Demenga has led a class for students and soloists at the Hochscule fur Musik in Basel.
Casa San Miguel in San Antonio, Zambales is home to the famous Pundaquit Virtuosi that has just concluded a European Tour recently.
