TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Philippine Madrigal Singers, one of the major choral groups based in the Philippines performed their repertoire of classic songs in Tainan and Taipei last week. It has been 17 years since the group’s last performance in Taiwan.
Manila Economic and Cultural Office Chairman and Resident Representative Angelito T. Banayo lauded the group’s display of vocal prowess that evidently impressed the audience that jam-packed the National Concert Hall in the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial grounds.
The singers, led by their choirmaster Mark Anthony Carpio, initially performed at the Pingtung Concert Hall and Tainan Cultural Center, both in the southern part of the island.
They also performed before small audiences at the Taichung Chung Hsing Hall, Taipei Holy Family Church and National Taiwan University. [FULL STORY]
