The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - A month-long series of Christmas specials is in store for followers of the art and culture show Art 2 Art, with the program presenting choir music, a balagtasan, folk dances and a theatrical excerpt in its December episodes.

On Dec. 7, the Hiyas ng Pilipinas Youth Choir led by conductor-music director Nicanor Infante sets the tone with a mini-concert of beloved Christmas carols.

On Dec. 14, poet Michael Coroza discusses the attempts to revive the balagtasan among the present generation. He mentors the group of young poets called the Balagstars composed of Dakila Cutab, RR Cagalingan and Loaf Fonte who give a sample of the oral literary tradition.
