Exultate! Chorale Fest

A Wacky Pic After the Singing

The remnants (temporarily) of the Salmo Chorale joined the Manila Baptist Church Hymn Festival 22 August 2010, 7PM. It was a great experience for the Salmo Chorale newbies, to say the least.

A month before, MBC sent an invite for our choir to join “Exultate!” A Hymn Festival. It was scheduled on a good date and there seemed to be no problem.

Well, surprise, surprise! When you thought everything’s ok… 🙂 The Festival date was moved to the 22nd of August and coincided with the Young Adults’ Cebu Trip, and it happened that most of those flying to Cebu are group leaders in the choir and most of those remaining are what I call “Salmo Babies.”  I’ve decided against pursuing the joining, but most of the remaining singers were all for it.

So , despite my irreversible (sic) decision not to join anymore, guess what, I gave in and even sang with them in the chorus so I could sing beside some of them and assist in the singing.

The day before was the Grand Rehearsal, and boy, what a long day it was. It took about ten hours. I guess the organizer could have done better at planning the event, just my opinion here; but my Salmo babies enjoyed somehow; and I guess it is enough for me to just shrug it off.

But everything’s worth it. We were privileged to sing with about four other choirs. And my Salmo Chorale had their fill for the longing to join events like this one. If only for that, I am happy.

The event itself was awesome, especially each time the combined choirs sing the hymns. There were narrations about how each hymn came into being; on how the songs were written out of the author’s personal circumstances. Reverend Fidel spoke on why the hymns are essential parts of worship. One of those is that, the majority of the hymn writers are theologians. And this fact spells the difference between all other gospel genre.

We were individually blessed by the experience; singers and audience alike. And this involvement is definitely one of the highlights in Salmo Chorale’s growth. Thank God.

Pasko Na! (It’s Christmas!)

    Merry Christmas!
    The EBC SALMO Chorale and the EBC SonBeams had a blast as they presented an Arnel De Pano Christmas album, “Pasko Na!” It is indeed more fun to sing in one’s native tongue. Even the audience was very receptive and appreciative. After all, we sang about something so close to our hearts: Christmas; in Tagalog.

    Pasko Na! tells of Christmas that’s uniquely Filipino; the traditions, culture, food and everything surrounding this much-awaited season.  There’s the Simbang Gabi where people would wake up at dawn for nine mornings to go to church. Nine days till Christmas day, that is. Adding to the fondness of the occasion are the special traditional foods awaiting the church goers as they come out of the churches. Lining the streets are vendors of local delicacies, mostly sweet rice cakes, puto bumbong with tea, and puto kawali.

    And we’re not done yet. Filipinos celebrate the Christmas Season much longer than other peoples. We are way early than others to be in Christmas mode. I think some would smirk upon hearing Christmas carols as early as July. And the season officially ends on the 6th of January as the nation celebrates The Three Kings (day).

    For the kids, the Christmas Day is the best day of the holiday seasons. For it is on this day that they go around in droves to visit their godfathers/mothers, and relatives to kiss hands and be given “pamasko” (Christmas gifts). In the absence of gifts, relatives or even neighbors hand each child with money. I remember my younger days when at the end of the day we would be enthusiastically counting our “napamaskuhan” (collected pamasko ) and see who’s got the most.

    But the cantata is still centered on the real theme of the season: the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ and His gift of life for all mankind. Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the yuletide season, we need never forget that God gave up His throne to be born a helpless child, to live a humble life and ultimately, to die in our stead. All that for His love towards us.

    After the Christmas presentation, the night segued to party mode as it was also our Christmas party.

    Happy Holidays! 🙂
