Held at The Row, Glorietta 5, last May 31, 2011 was Freeway’s paid tribute to a living legend – Philippine National Artist F. Sionil Jose. It was a night of celebration of F.Sionil Jose’s life. The event was hosted by Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, no less.
Freeway’s tribute to F. Sionil Jose started off with a video presentation of the artist’s life followed by a very entertaining series of Tertulia chosen from the well known works of the celebrated artist. Freeway could not have chosen a better interpreter for the night. In my humble opinion, I think dramatic actress Cherie Gil gave justice to F. Sionil Jose’s works as she read through the excerpts of the works of this literary genius and so did the talented musician/poet, journalist and artist, Lourd Ernest De Veyra.
