Ms. Pauline Luceño gave her best during her Junior Recital yesterday. She was full of emotions and delivered each song with precise expression and flourish. The repertoire was carefully selected to suit the range and tone of her voice.
She sang arias, kundimans and musicals such as O Rest in the Lord, Ave Maria, Clavelitos, Tanto Sospirero, Bituing Marikit, Dove Sono, Panis Angelicus, O Del Mio Dolce Ardor, Sa Umaga, None But The Lonely Heart and Climb Every Mountain. Ms. Consuelo Escudero brought a well- balanced piano accompaniment to the pieces.
