Welcome! Mabuhay!

Thank you for visiting jennifertrijo.com, a hub of creativity where I explore every element of my artistry and self-expression.

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.

The Serenade Files is an arts and lifestyle blog featuring reviews, advice for creatives, and opinion pieces that I have crafted to make sense of the world.

All the content on my blog is shareable and my hope is that it will assist others.

As an arts reviewer, I hope to empower other artists by providing timely feedback for their shows to help them promote their work.

I specialise in writing about the performing arts, music, and education. I have studied music, education, journalism, and business management.

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.

Singer / Musician / Performer

I have many years of stage experience as a vocalist, actor, dancer, and musician. My main instruments are voice, piano, and guitar. I am available for hire as a freelance musician. My repertoire link includes some of the songs I can perform. Here is a sample of me performing the pop ballad Broken Vow by Lara Fabian and Walter Afanasieff:

I can perform solo or with accompanying musicians depending on a client’s needs. Here is a sample of me performing one of my original songs Go-Getter live with a 5 piece band and backing vocalists:

“Go where no one has gone, go all life long, go as the beat goes on, go-getter this is your song.” ~ Jennifer Trijo
