2021 SING PHILIPPINES YOUTH CHOIR (SPYC) VIRTUAL MUSIC CAMP & PERFORMANCES
SPYC 2021 goes virtual!
Organized and presented by the Philippine Madrigal Singers (MADZ), the Andrea O. Veneracion Sing Philippines Foundation (AOVSPF), the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Center for Choral Performance, and the CCP - Cultural Exchange Department (CED), the SPYC was successfully launched last June 2014 and was participated by fifty (50) choristers from 19 provinces across the country who underwent a professional week-long music camp under MADZ choirmaster Mark Anthony Carpio. The Sing Philippines movement brings to life National Artist Andrea O. Veneracion’s vision of a nation singing in harmony and united in songs. The second batch was organized in 2016 which added a new set of 50 singers from 26 provinces while the third batch in 2018 was composed of 51 singers from 37 provinces/cities nationwide. To date, the SPYC totals to 151 singers from 82 local communities all over the country.
For 2021, the SPYC continues to grow as it welcomed Batch 4 last July 6. Fifty nine choristers singers / choristers from 21 different provinces and cities will undergo a virtual training and mentoring Mark Anthony Carpio, Madz choirmaster and SPYC Camp Director, along with members of the Phil. Madrigal singers. The month long virtual camp will run through July and will culminate with an online choral performance on July 31.
