Freeway x Lucio San Pedro Launch

Freeway recently launched their 9th National Artist (for the National Artist Collector's Series) with awe-inspiring pieces beaming with Filipino pride. This time, they're featuring Lucio San Pedro, National Artist for Music, who is a great Filipino composer and teacher. He's known for a lot of beautiful compositions like the widely popular lullaby "Sa Ugoy ng Duyan" and the symphonic poem "Lahing Kayumanggi".

The launch was held at The Row, Main Glorietta last May 28 (Tuesday), with singer and actress Rachel Alejandro as the event's host.

Lucio San Pedro's grand daughter sang the prayer and I was so stunned with her beautiful voice. Music indeed runs in the blood of their family. These talented kids also sang during the event, too, with a couple of Lucio San Pedro's great compositions. I rarely listen to kundiman, but sobrang na-appreciate ko 'to. :)

The gorgeous Rachel Alejandro performed, too! It was my first time to hear her sing live. Galing! :)

Some of Lucio San Pedro's family members/friends were also present there, and they tackled more about the life of the featured national artist.

Before the end of the event, Freeway introduced the two winners of the Freeway Art Bag Design Contest. Congratulations to Christine Sioco who made the "Ang Huling Babaylan" and Kevin Roque for the "Fiestas in the Philippines". They've got  really impressive designs!! ♥

We went to the store after to see the Freeway x Lucio San Pedro clothes. 

Shop from a wide array of casual to work tops and dresses, with unique cuts and styles, fused with lyrics and little of San Pedro's famous orchestra pieces. Colors range from the basic black and white to subtle tones such as beige and teal. These pieces will surely capture the essence and mark of the Filipina's modern beauty.
