DESCRIPTION

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Treaty of Manila, which recognized the independence of the Philippines. Joining us this evening will be Cecilia Gaerlan from the Bataan Legacy Historical Society and Stephen Haller, historian for the National Park Service at Golden Gate National Recreation. The duo will take us on a journey through time as she highlights significant milestones in Filipino history, from the 1898 Battle of Manila up to present day. A focus of the evening will be exploring the development of jazz and its roots in the Philippines. Join Myrna Zialcita from the San Francisco Filipino Amercian Jazz Festival as we honor Blues, R&B, and Jazz pioneer, San Francisco’s own, Sugar Pie De Santo. Contemporary artist, Aireene Espiritu, will perform some of Ms. De Santo’s classic and beloved compositions, as well as some of her own originals.
