She devoted her professional life to the development of Filipino music and the growth of Filipino musician.

Tita King founded the Philippine Music Ensemble to illustrate the many facets of Philippine Music – ethnic, traditional, and contemporary. She was Chairperson of the League of Filipino Composers for 30 years and has composed more than 250 compositions of all types, many of which synthesized the myriad influences in Philippine culture.

‘With Tita King’s vast accomplishments and contributions to Philippine music, PHLPost has featured the great woman in the latest commemorative stamp issue in her honor”, Postmaster General Joel Otarra said.

Designed by PHLPost in-house artist Victorino Z. Serevo, the stamp features the beautiful portrait of National Artist Lucrecia R. Kasilag with her world famous Philippine Music Ensemble at the background. PHLPost has printed 50,000 copies of the P12 single design commemorative stamp.
