THE University of the Philippines Singing Ambassadors (UPSA), one of the country’s foremost choral groups, is partnering with UP Cebu’s official choral group, The UP Serenata, for a one-night-only concert. Happening today, June 9 at 7:30 PM, the concert will be at the IEC Convention Center Cebu.
Celebrating their 37th year of existence, UPSA from UP Diliman will be touring around parts of Bicolandia, Visayas and Mindanao and holding concerts in these respective locations.
The group also wishes to share the musical experiences they’ve acquired from their tours and competitions abroad to Cebu and the local community. Through a collaboration with the UP Serenata, who will also be the organizers of this exciting endeavor, UPSA and its esteemed conductor, Ed Manguiat, will be spearheading interactive workshops with budding local choirs during the concert tour.
The renowned choral group will be showcasing their talents not just to entertain spectators but also to cultivate artistry and culture through singing — inspiring local talents to enrich their potential in the art of choral singing.
Composed of bona-fide students from the University of the Philippines Cebu, The U.P. Serenata’s main advocacy is to promote our very own Cebuano culture to fellow Filipinos through choral arts.
The event will consist of 3 main parts; namely a religious section where choral renditions of church classics and Latin arrangements will surely fill the halls with holiness, followed by an entertainment section wherein all different genres of fun and upbeat pieces will be performed, and finally, a conglomeration of Cebuano and Tagalog songs that will surely bring the whole event together and build itself up for a riveting finale.
All are invited to watch and enjoy the two choirs serenade everyone and exchange beautiful harmonies with each other in a night of euphonic symphony. /PR
