The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) through its Cultural Exchange Department (CED) and the Philippine Madrigal Singers (MADz) through the Andrea O. Veneracion Sing Philippines Foundation Inc. (AOVSPFI), in partnership with Batangas City, one of CCP’s Kaisa sa Sining Regional Arts Center in Luzon, hold a regional music camp with outreach concerts featuring the Sing Philippines Youth Choir (SPYC) tour group of 2019-2020, in Batangas City from August 20-25, 2019.
The SPYC project was launched in June 2014 by the MADz and the CCP CED. To date, the SPYC has 155 choristers/members from 72 provinces/local communities across the country. The Sing Philippines movement brings to life the vision of National Artist and MADz founder Andrea O. Veneracion, of a nation singing in harmony and united in songs. The next strategic goals of the SPYC organizers is to further advance the music training (through music camps in the regions) of a pre-auditioned group from the three batches, present them in local outreach performances this year, present them in an international concert tour in 2020 and finally have them participate in one of the prestigious choral competition in Europe in 2020.
