Sally Pinkas' Musical Tour in the Philippines

Professor Sally Pinkas spent most of December 2015 in the Philippines, performing as both a soloist and as half of the Hirsch-Pinkas Piano Duo (with her husband Evan Hirsch). Her solo program, presented at the University of the Philippines's Abelardo Hall, featured rarely-heard works by Filipino composers of the late 19th and early-20th century.  With Evan she presented a program at the prestigious Cultural Center of the Philippines in Manila, and in the Metro Center of Tagbilaran, Bohol.  The two taught young pianists in Masterclasses at the University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas, St. Paul University, and Centro Escolar Conservatory, all in Manila.  Professor Pinkas plans to record the Filipino program for commercial release.
