Notes and Stories

by Rhea Leorag

Note: This is actually an academic paper I submitted for my Development of Western Music class under Sir Jonathan Coo last semester, around September 2014. Today, I randomly found it as I rummaged through my files and thought of posting it here. It’s a mix of a feature article and a reflection paper, and was most likely done a day before it was due. Huge thanks to Joshua Cerdenia for accommodating a rush online interview. 🙂

Where’s The Sheep? – I Will Go


After a pretty long time of not having seen this duo live, I was able to watch them again last Saturday at Grateful Hearts, Greater Love!, and boy, I have never been prouder.

What we watched was no longer just “singer Mike Shimamoto and guitarist Hero Mauricio,” but a band that has found their unique sound as they share God’s grace through their beautiful music.


Grateful Hearts, Greater Love! A thanksgiving concert for the 200th year of Jesuit restoration

Today for me was a day of taking a break from the nasty mess of university Senior life, although I really shouldn’t be doing that with all the requirements piling up. I created this blog as I enter what I believe is a next step in my writing (more on that later), and I also just came from this wonderful concert at the Church of the Gesu, in celebration of 200 years of Jesuit Restoration.

It was a very inspiring event filled with so much talent and grace. I mean, just look at that line-up!
