Welcome! Mabuhay!

This publication celebrates the incredible achievements of fellow disruptors, innovators, and outside-the-box thinkers; people like you.

The content I have created is for independent creatives, arts enthusiasts, emerging artists, and entrepreneurs.

My mission is to shine a light on your achievements and help to tell your story. As a writer, I hope to empower creatives by writing content that will assist you in your pursuit of excellence.

The Serenade Files is an independent arts and lifestyle publication featuring reviews, inspiration for creatives, profile features, practical advice, and opinion pieces that I have crafted to make sense of the world.

I specialise in writing about the performing arts, music, and education. I write to benefit you and share the knowledge that I have gained through thousands of hours of stage experience, and studying music, education, journalism, and business management.

If you have a production or project you would like reviewed, contact me. Through reviewing, I hope to provide timely and impartial feedback to help you improve your craft and promote your work. All the content is shareable and my hope is that it will assist you and others you know.

Disclaimer: Reviews are opinion pieces. Please note that my criticism will only ever be constructive, honest, and based on my experience of a particular show, film, or book. I write from the perspective of a trained musician, performer, educator, and lover of the arts.

Furthermore, if you are, or you know of, an independent or emerging creative who is doing amazing work and deserves to be recognised, contact me. I would love to hear about it and perhaps write about it.

A brief history of the site

jennifertrijo.com is a hub for creativity where I explore every element of my artistry and self-expression. It began as a site to host my achievements in the performing arts and it evolved into an arts and lifestyle publication in January 2017. More information about me is available on this site. You can check out my portfolio of shows to read about my creative experience. I write for other publications too and my published work can be found here.

My entire back catalogue of original songs is available to stream for free. If you like what you hear and want to support my music, feel free to purchase my tracks. Visit Original Songs to learn more.

Serenade was a nick name I was given throughout high school. My peers knew me as the singer and Serenade was a by-product of my active singing reputation. I decided on the name The Serenade Files because the creative achievements of human beings are definitely something to sing about.

I hope that you enjoy your visit to The Serenade Files. Feel free to leave a comment on any of the articles, connect with me on social media, or contact me via this site.
