Himig Handog Finals Orchestrations

The Himig Handog Love Songs finals were held last Feb. 24 at the MOA Arena.

I was fortunate to have been given the task of orchestrating 3 of the songs that made it to the finals.

Hanggang Wakas
COMPOSER: Soc Villanueva
ARRANGER; Arnold Buena
INTERPRETER: Juris

Hanggang Wakas by Soc Villanueva, the 2nd prize winner, was a real tearjerker for me. Arnold Buena, who is an accomplished composer in the advertising industry (and who is also one of my Mountain Biking buddies) really nailed the arrangement on this one - highlighting important passages and generally making good use of drama and story. Juris’s crystal clear voice also helped get the message through, wonderfully.

Pwede Bang Ako Na Lang Ulit
COMPOSER: Jeff Cifra
ARRANGER: Dominic Benedicto
INTERPRETER: Bugoy Drilon

Composer Jeff Cifra wrote a moving and highly-relatable song here. Another tearjerker.

Pwede Ba
