Wala na yung TISA" ^^ pinalitan na ng masunog ang ceiling years ago, bodega nalang ang loob nyan, pinanatili ng may ari , Buti hindi bineneta para gibain at gawing walter mart, jolibee mcdo 711 :lol:

Binibili din yan nung taga Bataan para ilipat sa theme park nya para pagkakitaan nya, Mawawala na simbulo ng Balagtas kung nagkaganon,

Salamat sa may ari at hindi puro jolibee mcdo pag iisip, Eh kahit saan naman pwede nyo itayo mcdo nyo, Aaswangin nyo pa ang heritage :nuts:

Maski bodega nalang atleast andyan pa, Sana pagkagastusan ng Munisipyo ilan nalang ang ganyang bahay sa Bulacan.

I saw the Thread Title when I opened SSC tonight. :D Then I was reminded of the great composer, The Pride of Bulacan.
More on this classic. The Mabuhay Singer's version.

Kundiman- Madaling Araw -Mabuhay Singers (Rare Copy)

Uploaded by philclassic on Jun 30, 2010


A classical Kundiman composition by Francisco Santiago with lyrics written by Jose Corazon de Jesus. Interpreted by the Mabuhay Singers. Audio from a vintage vinyl phonograph recording ("Mabuhay Singers Sing Kundiman", Villar Records, Mareco Inc.)

==========

Francisco Santiago (1889-1947)


Francisco Santiago was born in Santa Maria, Bulacan, on January 29, 1889 to musically-minded peasant parents, Felipe Santiago and Maria Santiago. He was the first of their three children. His parents had the same surname but they were not related by blood. At age seven, he took solfeggio lesssons under an uncle, Matias Magracia, a country violinist, who took him along to haranas or serenades during moonlit nights. But his parents did not like him to be a musician. It was after his father died that he was given open encouragement to study music. He became popular in his hometown as a boy singer in the school and in the church.



After completing his elementary education in the public school, he went to Manila. He was admitted as a houseboy in the Dominican convent and studied piano forte under the famous Dominican music teachers, such as Blas Echegoyen, Faustino Villacorta, and Fray Primo Calzada. With the latter, he studied vocalization, organ playing and the rudiments of compositions. He finished his primary education at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran and left to find employment as a pianist in various stage theatres. He joined orchestra groups while continuing with his college course which he finished at the Liceo de Manila.

In 1908, his first composition, Purita, was dedicated to the first Carnival Queen, Mis Pura Villanueva, who later married the distinguished scholar Teodoro M. Kalaw.

In 1912, he won first prize in musical contest sponsored by Teodoro M. Kalaw. In the same year, he won a first prize in a musical contest entitled Oxipator (Waltz) sponsored by Yangco firm. A year later he made a zarzuela entitled Margaritang Mananahi. In 1914, he was lured to accept a job abroad, directing an orchestra in Shanghai. Upon his return to Manila, he taught piano and became director of the choir at the San Jose Seminary, Manila, 1915-1916.

In September 1916, he was taken in as an instructor while working in the conservatory. He composed what is now the classic Anak ng Dalita. He enrolled at the Conservatory taking courses under Director George and others. In the same year, he fell in love with a young student who was enrolled in voice culture by the name of Concepcion Ocampo.


The New director (Schofield) of the Conservatory of Music saw that Santiago should have further training abroad. Arrangements were made with University authorities and Santiago left in August 1923 to enroll at the American Conservatory of Music, Chicago, Illinois, where he obtained his Master of Music degree, 1924. He also received a special honorable mention during the commencement exercises for excellence in studies.

He was the first Filipino to receive the degree of Doctor of Music from the Chicago Musical College. His graduation piece played at the Kimball Hall was entitled Concerto in B Flat Minor, 1924. The American Conservatory of Music also awarded him the teacher's Certification in voice culture. Then he participated in an international contest conducted by the Chicago Daily news, and his Remembrance, was awarded third place.

Back in Manila in 1923, he made his debut at the Zorilla theatre on February 5, 1925. Dr. Santiago returned to the UP conservatory of Music. Dr. Alexander Lippay, the director of the school took notice of his talent and immediately promoted him to assistant professor, making him head of the piano department. He taught advanced composition among other subjects. He then won first prize in two national contests namely, Himno al Cristo Rey (1928) and Himno del Congreso Eucaristico Nacional (1929) which he considered the greatest moment of his life, more significant than the honor he received in Chicago.

When the UP Board of Regents did not renew Dr. Lippay's contract, Santiago was named official-in-charge and was later promoted to associate professor of piano and acting director of the Conservatory.

In 1935, he was named full professor and director of the Conservatory of Music. During the Japanese occupation in 1943, he had a heart attack and suffered from paralysis which incapacitated him.

Santiago's masterpiece was the "Concerto in B flat minor" for pianoforte and orchestra. His most famous piece "Kundiman, (Anak-Dalita)", was sung upon the request of King Alfonso III before the Royal Court of Spain.

He was named UP Emeritus Professor of Piano, on May 25, 1946. When the U.P. Conservatory of Music was celebrating its 30th anniversary, the nationalistic musician died of heart attack on September 28, 1947. He was buried at the North Cemetery, Manila.

@yami..

Yung Sinasabing Haunted House na Bahay na Pula..actually hindi naman talaga sya haunted house na puro mumu..typical old house din yan na gaya ng nagkalat sa Malolos,Plaridel,Baliuag,San Miguel

TV at Film lang ang nag sensationalize na Haunted House yan..kasi dahil sa location at itsura..syempre kung sino man ang TV outfit o film na nag shoot dyan..ipamamalita na may mumu para macurious ang publiko at para sa publicity ng Pelikula o TV series..:D

another thing,,Historical yan..Bahay yan ng mga Ilusorio..the formal term is..Ilusorio Mansion..

Kung usapang haunted house..lahat halos ng bahay na bato sa Bulacan at sa buong Pilipinas ay Haunted na maituturing..

Unfair kasi sa mga Ilusorio kung ang kanilang bahay ay nababansagang Haunted.:D
