In celebration of Filipino Heritage Month, on June 6, 2024, for the first time in its history, the hallowed halls of the Manitoba Legislative Building echoed with the sounds of timeless kundiman, harana and zarzuela songs sung in the classical tradition. The intimate performance featured three classical singers – Mexican soprano Paulina Gonzalez, soprano Jasmine Wallace, and tenor Ronald Mervin Sison; maestro Jett Russel Panganiban on piano, and emerging young singer Summer Flora Santos.
