Lucio San Pedro and his Colorful Music
Part of the Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth series, this book tells the story of National Artist for Music Lucio San Pedro (1913-2002). "A master composer, conductor, and teacher whose music evokes the folk elements of the Filipino heritage, San Pedro produced a wide-ranging body of works that includes band music, concertos for violin and orchestra, choral works, cantatas, chamber music, music for violin and piano, and songs for solo voice. He was the conductor of the much acclaimed Peng Kong Grand Mason Concert Band, the San Pedro Band of Angono, his father’s former band, and the Banda Angono Numero Uno. His commitment and work with town bands have significantly contributed to the development of a civic culture among Filipino communities and opened a creative outlet for young Filipinos."
