Choral Potpourri: Choral Ethics; Bein’ Highfalutin

September 29, 2016 -

“It is impossible, in our condition of Society, not to be sometimes a Snob.” William Makepeace Thackeray Recently, I’ve become aware I am being referred to as Highfalutin, an Elitist, and a Snob. All those things are, apparently, bad things. In my own work, I suppose I am a bit

Kenneth Potter160 boys. Poor baby I feel so sorry for you. I'd take maybe 140 of them off your hands. How many do you really need?

David DillardKen....it is so great to see young men wanting to be involved in a musical group. I have worked with the Atlanta Boy Choir and find it so rewarding to work and see them grow musically, mentally and spirituality. I know you must be very proud of them!

David DonathanHi Ken. I have about 70 robes like these you can have. A few clarifications: they are adult sizes, but some are for smaller adults, and they have the cathedral length surplice, not the shorter ones you have. We bought new ones 2 years ago. They are in pretty good shape, royal blue, 100% poly, cotton/poly surplice, in 2 boxes ready to ship. They could easily be altered. Message me.

CORO SAN BENILDO is the resident choral group of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) in Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1990 by a group of students who wanted to serve in the regular Holy Masses in the College. The group then went on to sing intermission numbers during institutional programs.

After being handled by nine conductors from 1995 – 2008, the group is now under the tutelage of Mr. Lorenzo C. Gealogo. Since 2008, the group has been part of numerous performances, bringing with them an innovative and creative showmanship which has earned them various achievements on and off campus.

 RECENT TRAININGS

Aside from Coro San Benildo’s regular rehearsal schedule the group  also attended workshops and trainings from different mentors in the choral industry such as:

  • Choral Clinicing with Mr. Mark Anthony Carpio, Conductor of the Philippine Madrigal Singers in August 2012
  • Swedish Conductor Fred Sjoeberg’s Master Class in February 1 -3, 2013

  • Choral Competition Workshop with Jonathan Velasco, President of the Philippine Choral Directors Association & Conductor of the Ateneo Chamber Singers in June 2016

At present, Coro San Benildo continues to sing, perform and join international choral competitions to represent the school and the Philippines globally, and to promote Choral Music in the Philippines.
