EBC Summer Moves 2012

This is our Summer Moves Banner, designed by our co-admin Gale Letana.

Thank You!


Just a short but BIG “Thanks!” to Pastor & Mrs. Ed Cordero for playing a big part to the realization of our latest musical instrument, the Yamaha DGX-530 Portable Grand. The Lord is surely honored and blessed as you gave to Him without any reservations. The same goes to everyone who also gave and became part of this endeavor. This includes of course our friends who opened their homes for our caroling last Christmas 2011. We felt how sincerely they blessed us by supporting our fund-raising effort not just on this endeavor but in our previous ones. These are brethren who anticipate our yearly Christmas serenades and repeatedly signified their anticipation of our yearly Christmas visits 🙂

From all of Salmo, and the Emmanuel BC family, Maraming Salamat Po! Wow,we are very blessed indeed. And God bless you too!

“For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.” ~Hebrews 6.10

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.
