MCHS Glee Club, CCDC concert features classic, well-loved OPMs

The MCHS Glee Club together with the Cultural and Classical Dance Club (CCDC) held their 12th joint concert dubbed “Sa ‘Tin” last February 3 and 4 at the Marian Auditorium.

The two day concert was held for the MC and high school community and for the family and friends of the performers.  At the helm is BEU Admissions Officer and MCHS Glee Glub conductor Nancy Roman.

The MCHS and CCDC sang and danced to Filipino classics and well-loved OPM songs to the delight of the audiences.  “We featured an all-OPM repertoire so we thought that “Sa ‘Tin” short for Sa Atin or Sariling Atin would be fitting. The concert also coincided with the celebration National Arts Month,” said Roman.

Among the songs featured were a medley of Saranggola ni Pepe, Mamang Sorbetero and Kalesa; medley of Galawgaw, Waray-WarayDalagang Pilipina and Manang Biday‘Til I Met YouKapag Tumibok ang PusoIkaw LamangForever More; and Paalam Na.

The CCDC and MCHS Glee Club have mounted several concerts since 2003 and “we have not stopped collaborating since then,” said Roman.

MC marks start of advent, celebrates its 90th with light and music

The school welcomed the month of December with the traditional Lighting of the Advent Star and the staging of the 90th anniversary concert titled, “Knoll to Now”. The events were held last Dec. 2 at the Marian Auditorium with the MC community composed of the Maryknoll Sisters, administrators, faculty, students, community partners, MCare members, parents, parent officers filling the auditorium.

The night opened with the Lighting organized by the Miriam Adult Education. MAE faculty volunteer Sunny Cortez led the para liturgy with numbers by MAE students in between. Highlighting the activity were the lighting of the Advent star and the 90 stars that surrounded the Belen at the Lady Shepherdess grounds.  Representing President Rosario O. Lapus was Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Maria Lourdes Q. Baybay for the symbolic turning of lights to mark the start of advent.  

The Lighting was immediately followed by an overture from the Shirley Halili Ballet Group to open the concert that celebrates Maryknoll/Miriam College through the decades. The legacy of the Maryknoll Sisters and each lay president who came after them were remembered through a narration and an AVP.  In between, song and dance numbers from the 1920s to the 2010s were showcased by the school’s homegrown talents and special guests. Well-loved Christmas music filled the stage with each performer giving life to them through song, dance, and classic renditions on the violin, guitar, and piano.   

The MCHS Glee Club back to back with CCDC put the audience in the mood for Christmas with the songs Deck the Rooftop and Carol of the Bells; the trio of Loida Campos, Cynthia Guico and Ella Baarde entertained with the 1940s hit Chatanooga Choo Choo; while Iqui Vinculado and Jenny De Vera, Music Center faculty and members of the award-winning Triple Fret, stirred nostalgia with their number When You Wish Upon A Star. World-renowned violinist John Lesaca brought the house down with the Beatles’ Help on electric guitar and a delightful Christmas Medley on violin. 

HEU Pep Squad brought the 70s back with hits like Dancing Queen and Hot Stuff; MS Chorus and MC-SAID touched the audience with For the Beauty of the Earth and Munting Sanggol; while MC alumna Camille Abadicio inspired with the songs Hero and I Believe I Can Fly.  Not to be outdone were the mighty CSC kids who rocked the house with their ‘Dynamite’ dance. Keeping the mood Christmasy all throughout were our very own Sayawatha, MC Aria, and MC Choral. 

Towards the end, Sister Marisa, who represented the Maryknoll Sisters, delivered a message of hope to which Grade 2 student Kirsten Dioko responded. Kristine Lesaca, Lower School APSA, thanked the founders and leaders who have brought Miriam to where it is today.  

The show closed with a finale song titled I Have Called You, You Are Mine composed by Alejandro Consolacion II and Noemi Binag. Under the baton the Middle School’s Jhames Labrador, all performers together with representatives from each unit sang the song dedicated to the Maryknoll Sisters and lay leaders who guided the school from Knoll to Now. 

Indeed it was a memorable and joyous night of light and music thanks to the supportive unit heads, performers and their respective moderators, the Knoll to Now technical team, AOs of the different units, and maintenance personnel who all worked on and back stage under the overall direction of Boyette Fernandez, LS Administrative Officer, and musical direction of Jhames Labrador, MS Music Subject Area Supervisor.
