Featuring Benchito CariñoRamoncito CarpioNathan Neil Manimtim, and Alberto Mesa

Thursday, 11 August 2016 | 6:30 PM
Ayala Museum Ground Floor Lobby


The Manila Guitar Quartet (MGQ) was formed by accomplished classical guitarists who are also faculty members of some of the country’s top music schools. It is composed of Benchito Cariño from The Philippine Women’s University, Ramoncito Carpio from St. Scholastica’s College/ Sta.Isabel College, Nathan Neil Manimtim from the University of the Philippines, and Alberto Mesa from the University of Santo Tomas.

For this GuitarNights presentation, MGQ will be performing beloved Filipino and Latin songs, as well as excerpts from George Bizet’s Carmen arranged for classical guitar by William Kanengiser.

The group aims to be the premiere guitar quartet in the country, championing classical music from diverse styles and periods, and most especially original Filipino music.

The quartet encourages unity and camaraderie among guitar schools, institutions and societies locally in the hopes that a collaborative environment, borne out of mutual, professional, as well as artistic respect, shall yield a healthier, thriving guitar scene for amateurs and professionals alike.

MGQ also plans to organize festivals and workshops all over the country as part of its advocacy in promoting culture and the arts, as well as educating more people about the proper appreciation of the music of our country’s most beloved instrument, the guitar.
