Choirs of the world, this is what WE have all been waiting for!
Watch this video of Sir Mark Carpio inviting all to join this choral celebration.
The first international choral competition in the Philippines, the Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival, Manila 2013 will be held starting Wednesday this week, August 7. The festival will consist of three days of competitions, a concert by the Philippine Madrigal Singers, outreach performances in nearby towns, and a choral workshop to be conducted by one of the invited jury members, Eric Banks.
The event is organized by the Cultural Center of the Philippines in celebration of its resident choral group’s 50th anniversary–the Philippine Madrigal Singers, and to honor Prof. Andrea O. Veneracion, Founder of the Madz and National Artist for Music.
Check out the CCP Website for complete information about the festival.
P.S. Special thanks to Mark and the Madz for allowing me and my husband to produce the video. Shoot was done during one of the recording sessions for the upcoming new album (that’s a story for another post, so stay tuned!). Photos used with permission from the Madz website and from Madz alumni. This video was done with much Madz love and I thank you for all your support!
