Spend ‘A Night of Carols’ with the Philippine Madrigal Singers this December
What makes the Christmas season unlike any other is not only the continuous flow of food and gifts but the joyful singing of the music as well.
And so this coming December 5, 2019, wallow in a night of only the joyous carols as Ayala Museum brings in the Philippine Madrigal Singers for this year’s Season’s Symphonies at the Lobby Lounge of Makati Shangri-La!
The Philippine Madrigal Singers or commonly known as Madz is rooted in the history and the future of one of the country’s premier universities, the University of the Philippines (UP)—who brought home nothing but honor ever since the group came to life in the far-fetched year of 1963 through the late National Artist for Music Andrea O. Veneracion.
It is finely made up of an ensemble of students, faculty, and alumni hailing from UP that performs an extensive music spectrum as they sit in a semi-circle, together with the current choirmaster Mark Anthony Carpio.
This encompasses Renaissance music, classical music, Filipino and international folksongs, contemporary and avant-garde music, and opera. Notably, Madz does not let popular music pass them by.
The chorale presently keeps innumerable awards and distinctions under its belt; some of which include being the world’s first-ever recipient of The Brand Laureate Premier Award from the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation as well as the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing twice (1997 and 2007), and UNESCO’s Artists for Peace in 2002.
Begin your Christmas celebration with the Philippine Madrigal Singers! Tickets are available at TicketWorld’s outlets and website.
And in order to satisfy not only your ears but your stomachs as well, a 3-course dinner is available at the Lobby Lounge before the concert and a 30% markdown on your bill at Circles Event Café awaits after the concert.
