Artist bio

Celeste Legaspi is the daughter of painter Cesar Legaspi. She was born on March 18, 1950. She is a graduate of Mass Communication from Maryknoll College. But Celeste found out she was musically inclined even before she studied at Maryknoll. While studying at St. Paul, she essayed the lead roles in two college productions; “One Legendary Evening” and “Showboat”

Legaspi also appeared in several plays of the Philippine Educational Theater association where she was lucky enough to work with the great directors Lino Brocka and National Artist Rolando Tinio. She sang the part of the first woman in the play “Tales of the Manuvu,” in 1977, where Hajji Alejandro was also a cast.

In 1988, she made a special appearance in the hit musical “Katy!” for the CCP’s Tanghalang Pilipino. Read more
