Philippine-American Performing Arts of Greater Pittsburgh recital "Sari-Sari" at Kelly-Strayhorn Theater, September 15.



The Philippine-American Performing Arts of Greater Pittsburgh will present its eighth annual recital on September 15, a show called "Sari-Sari."
Inspired by the phrase “sari-sari,” meaning variety or sundry, “SARI-SARI” is a continuation of last year’s “HALO-HALO” recital. Reflecting the breadth and depth of the Philippine culture and history—which encompass animistic beliefs of the many mountain tribes, Muslim and Christian beliefs, and celebrations of Spanish-influenced fiestas—this evening of dance and music is a celebration of Filipino arts. Musicians, dancers, and singers perform a variety of dances that preserve and propagate folk traditions while showing them in a totally different light.

Philippine-American Performing Arts of Greater Pittsburgh is a resident company of KST’s Alloy Studios.
The recital starts at 4:30 at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater in East Liberty (map). Tickets are available online.
