Pianist Charisse Baldoria at the CCP on Wednesday

Today hasn't been a particularly sunny day for me. I was stuck practically the whole afternoon in meetings. But when I returned to work, there was a very nice gift waiting for me on my desk from JL. How very apt it is, as I've just wrapped up Travelife Magazine's Paris special edition today.

And now here I am with a lovely Louis Vuitton traveling notebook, complete with a convenient calculator for shopping, that says Paris all over it. That's giving me a message, as far as I'm concerned, that I have to head to Paris sometime soon. And that's the feeling you're going to get as well, when you see our August-September 2012 issue, which has everything you need to know about discovering (or re-discovering) Paris in style.

In fact, late last night -- or early this morning, actually, as it was 2 AM -- my friend M and I were exchanging pretty philosophical and funny emails. We both couldn't sleep. And we'd decided it was high time we planned a trip to France. We're both hooked on everything French, you see, and now I have this traveling notebook to take with me.


On Wednesday, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) starts its series of concerts by young Filipino artists. 

The first in the series is pianist Charisse Baldoria, who will perform solo at 730 PM at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater).


Charisse Baldoria’s programs reflect her fascination with folk music and the cultural exchanges between the East and West, focusing on the Spanish empire, drawing relationships between Spain, Cuba and the Philippines. She also focuses on dances like the habanera and flamenco.

She has performed these programs in Spain, the United States and Asia. In her latest concerts, she tries to incorporate works from or inspired by Asia.

Charisse is a summa cum laude graduate from the UP College of Music and earned her master’s and doctorate degrees at the University of Michigan under a Fulbright and Barbour scholarships. She is a two-time First Prize winner of the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) and winner of several other piano competitions abroad.
