Mheco Manlangit, Noli Me Tangere The Opera’s Maria Clara, is set to sing tough arias at the Cultural Center of the Philippines for a one-night show. The young soprano will conquer CCP’s Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino’s stage on February 1, 2020, at 7:30 pm with the Philippines’ most brilliant pianist, Dr. Raul M. Sunico and rising star, Radnel Ofalsa, Tenor. L’amour: An Evening of Love Songs is a pre-valentine concert designed for couples, families, and even friends.
Repertoire will include vocal gems from various composers such as ‘Je dis que rien ne m’épouvante’, ‘Quando Me’n Vo’,’Ma quando tornSSSerai’, ‘Chi il bel sogno di Doretta’, ‘Estrellita’ By Manuel Maria Ponce and a breathtaking duet of West Side Story and Don Pasquale.

Manlangit was nominated as one of the 2014 Top Ten Outstanding Students of the Conservatory of Music at the University of Sto. Tomas under Dr. Eugene De Los Santos and vocal coach, Professor Najib Ismail. She was the first Prize Winner of Jovita Fuentes Vocal Competition back in 2018, the Second Prize Winner of Singapore International Festival of Music Competition in 2017 and NAMCYA Voice, Category C, finalist.
After receiving a Steinhardt Music Scholarship at the New York University last year, Mheco is now exposed to a lot of singing opportunities like performing at the welcoming ceremony of the new dean of NYU’s faculty of Arts and Sciences. She also became part of the World Premier of Chandrika Tandon’s Shivoham-The Quest at Kennedy Center, and this Spring, Manlangit is looking forward to playing the role of ‘Lady Billows’ of NYU’s production of ‘Albert Herring’ by Benjamin Britten in the direction of Michael Scarola.
“I am very excited about all the things that I’ve been learning in grad school. I’m really thrilled and grateful for the opportunities God has provided me.” Manlangit said. The promising songbird will also be in Kabangkalan, Negros Occidental on January 24, 2019, to serenade students of Fellowship Baptist College.
The proceeds of L’amour: An Evening of Love Songs will go directly towards the gospel medical mission headed by Dr. Othello Caturan. The Pastor-Surgeon goes from country to country to provide surgical and medical care in underserved communities, impacting the lives of children and their families by sharing the goodness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He said that he wanted to be God’s instrument to help and heal the sick both physically and spiritually.
His team is directed and coordinated by a group of volunteers that includes physicians, nurses, and non-healthcare personnel since its creation two decades ago. They conduct surgeries, circumcisions, cyst removal, and postoperative care. The people who receive assistance usually suffer from upper respiratory infection, diarrhea, parasitic diseases, and dermatological problems.
Mheco Manlangit has been volunteering and performing for Dr. Caturan’s foundation for the past years, working and striving with the same goal-to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.
