Inspired by previous exhibits on the lives and works of Philippine National Artists, namely, Ramon Valera, Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal, Manuel Conde, Carlos ‘Botong’ Francisco, and Salvador Bernal, the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) celebrated the music of Philippine National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab’s music through a showcase of the milestones of his life and works by highlighting his career as a composer, arranger, musical director, conductor, choirmaster, host and music educator.
Entitled Kay Ganda Ng Ating Musika, An Exhibit on the Life and Work of National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab, the display features a grand piano to stage Cayabyab’s music, surrounded by a timeline presented through words, images and videos.
His songs are heard through curated playlists plus musical acts performed by the AB Music Production program, while furniture inspired by the Maestro’s songs were likewise on display around the venue, designed by Architecture and Interior Design students.
“This is our first-ever exhibit focused on music, as we have remained truthful to our mission: to continue to showcase our Philippine National Artists,” DLS-CSB Center for Campus Art (CCA) Director Architect Gerry Torres shared.
