The Philippine Madrigal Singers : Going For Gold Show In Davao City

The Philippine Madrigal Singers Seranades Davao As They Go For Gold

I had a rare opportunity to sit at the front row to watch The Philippine Madrigal Singers live last March 6 at SM Lanang Premier here in Davao City. They were here as part of their Goin’ For Gold Outreach Tour in line with their 50th Anniversary. Back then, I could only hear and watch in the news that they have been doing stellar shows here and abroad, bringing accolades for the country. Watching them perform live is indeed a different story. Every song and every performance is sang flawlessly well. And boy, they were entertaining too! For those who think that classical and traditional music is bland and boring, well, think again. Aside from their repertoire of Filipino novelty and traditional music, they also impressed the younger generation when they sang their version of a current local hit, “Pusong Bato” ( revived by the Kulaog band in 2012). They […]

In a minute, a mob of dancers were lined up in formation right before the delighted audience. Children of all ages, including us, watched with glee, […]
