PJLA Chorale members and Board of Trustees gathered on May 2, 2019 to give a surprise birthday party to Maestra Teresita A. Santos on her 89th. Held at the Dominion Building in Makati, the ladies also dedicated song performances to their maestra.
Atty. & Mrs. Herminio M. Alcasid Sr. sang “All I Ask Of You” with Tagalog medley songs, while Ms. Mikaela Victoria Aoki gave her rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You,” and Ms. Noriko Maruhashi sang a Japanese song. After the performances, chorale members also gave their warm birthday greetings and thanks to the maestra.
The celebrant and guests enjoyed a feast of Filipino and Japanese food such as fresh lumpia, rice noodles, kakanin, cassava cake, sushi, and Japanese traditional sweets. Also held before the party was the association’s board meeting where they presented a Plaque of Appreciation to former PJLA president, Mrs. Ma. Elena L. Loinaz.
The PJLA Chorale holds its practice every Thursday at the Ambassador Jose S. Laurel III Hall, Dominion Building, Makati City.
