Adventist University of the Philippines’ Ambassadors Chorale Arts Society has given the Philippines yet another reason to feel proud of. In the recently concluded World Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2011 held in Wales, our Pinoy chorale group placed no less than number one.
The AUP Ambassadors has been one of the most active choirs in the Philippine music setting, performing at major venues all throughout the Philippines and outside the country including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Thailand and major cities in the US and Canada.
The group often performs on PTV 4's Concert at the Park Series, numerous Cultural Center of the Philippines productions and the San Agustin Museum International Music Festivals.
Its credits include: Handel’s Messiah and John Rutter's Gloria and Magnificat for the San Agustin Museum International Music Festivals, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony for the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) Concert Series and Mozart's Requiem when they were chosen as the choir to represent the Philippines in the internationally simultaneous commemorative performance of the 9-11 New York tragedy, all of which were major collaborations with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Italian conductor Ruggiero Barbieri.
The group flew to the British Isles last week to race against other groups and with its current leg in Wales, they have unsurprisingly brought home the bacon. This should be a great start of their tour as they are set to perform and compete in Scotland and London this week.
Another Pinoy pride to be reckoned with.
