Congratulations Artefice Events for successfully presenting Seasons of the Heart, Valentine concert last February 13, 2013 in partnership with Dusit Thani Manila. Artefice never fails to bring classic entertainment and performances from world-class artists. Some of the previous concerts they produced showcased the talents of Jed Madela, Richard Poon, Jon Santos, Bo Cerudo and The Company.
Seasons of the Heart starred Raymond Lauchengco, that night celebrating 30 years in the local music industry; and international performer Stephanie Reese, the first Fil-Am singer who performed at the Carnegie Hall in New York. The band was directed by no other than Maestro Mel Villena.
My favorite performances for the night were Raymond singing his medley of his top hits “Farewell”, “I Need You Back” and “So its You”; and Stephanie’s rendition of Shirley Bassey’s “This is My Life” which received a standing ovation from the audience.
Stephanie’s version of Time After Time which I discovered via My Space Radio
