Andrew Lloyd Weber Serenades Us with his Love Songs

Even if my date for the evening was lady friend Cecile Infantado, the evening was romance filled with the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.  Take it from me, it was worth braving the torrential rains and trek all the way to CCP to watch and be serenaded by a group of 8 talented singers from Down Under.

It is not yet too late. Go to Ticketworld (8919999) and get your tickets for the Andrew Lloyd Webber Show at the CCP.  Man of the hour Francis Lumen and his partner, Bambi Verzo made sure that their Gala night, although rained out, had all the IN crowd in attendance. Canapes from Bizu and good wines kept the guests happy during the cocktail hour.

Favorites of the evening were the hit songs from Phantom of the Opera (Music of the Night) Memory from Cats, I Don’t Know How to Love Him from Jesus Christ Super Star, Don’t Cry for Me Argentina and You Must Love Me (Evita), Any Dream will Do from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, and other songs from  Aspects of Love, Sunset Blvd., StarLight Express, Woman in White, Requiem Mass that were not too familiar to us but nevertheless were melodious so they were enjoyable as well. 

 You will come out of CCP with a song in your heart and probably reminisce the love filled times of your life.
