by JJJ Perez
Sorsogon City (27 February) -- Twenty years and counting.
The Sorsogon Arts Council (SAC) is celebrating its 20th Foundation Anniversary this February coinciding with the observance of the National Arts Month.
Mr. Dan Razo of the Community-based Theater Group (CBTG)-Bukawel Performing Arts, a member organization under the umbrella of SAC, revealed that they are gearing for short performances and excerpts of some of the plays written by SAC founding Chairman Reynaldo "Tootsie" Jamoralin as a tribute for his great contributions in the field of arts.
Razo said that the performances will be the highlight of the general assembly of SAC in the afternoon of February 26, 2010 at the Sorsogon Museum and Heritage Center here.
"Our local artists will discuss, share and propose strategies, activities, programs and projects, including emergent concerns, for the promotion of local or Bikolnon arts and culture, in particular, and the true Filipino arts and culture, in general," Ella Grajo-Jamoralin said.
The SAC ad-hoc committee/convenor's group is regularly convening on Saturdays since January this year to pursue the initiatives of its founding chairman.
It can be recalled that Jamoralin was instrumental in the realization of the Sorsogon Museum and Heritage Center which the SAC is a member organization. (SAC-Sorsogon/PIA) [top]
