Andrea Nann and Alvin Tolentino perform Nov 1 for Project Mabuhay

Project Mabuhay, is an annual free Eye Ear and Nose Clinic
staffed by volunteer Canadian medical personnel for the indigent in the

Saturday, Nov. 1st

at the
Vancouver Playhouse 

All the artists are volunteering their time and
talents for this worthwhile project. Andrea Nann and Alvin Tolentino have been
invited to create a dance for a 2 piano tango piece being
performed by international concert pianist Dorothy Uytengsu and
Lester Soo.

Andrea and Alvin are two of Canada's top dance choreographers.  I have reviewed some of their past performances.

Here's what I have found on Cherelle Jardine's website:

You are cordially invited
to attend a fundraising concert benefitting Dr.Hugh Parsons, and his
charity, Project Mabuhay.  This medical mission is to
help the indigent people of the Philippines who are suffering from
various diseases that have little or no access to medical help by
conducting free eye and ear, nose & throat treatment clinics.  The
doctors, nurses & team
and all artists have all donated their time, talent and money to pay
for their OWN expenses (including hotel, airfare and food) to help
those less fortunate.

The evening is entitled “Project Mabuhay – An Evening of Song and Dance at the Queen Elizabeth Playhouse
Classical pianists Lester Soo with his duo partner Dorothy Uytengsu,
will be performing piano duo arrangements of music by Gershwin,
Rachmaninov, & Piazolla.  Several other noted artists will also be
performing  including
Joey Albert; singer; Andrea Nann; Dancer from Toronto, Cherelle Jardine
; pop/rock singer with Ricky Francisco, Dr. Malcolm Hayes; flautist,
and many more…..All in aid to raise funds for purchasing medical
equipment and supplies.
So come get your dose of culture and while doing so, knowing that you
are helping those less fortunate.  Tickets can only be purchased
directly from Debbie Mah for $20, $35 or $150 for the VIP catered
reception/after party.  I
encourage those who need a charitable donation tax receipt to attend
the VIP reception.  A tax receipt will be issued for $100 for VIP
ticket holders. Space limited to 150 people.
