Voices of Manila sing through Victoria

Chorus brings international flair to First Metropolitan United Church venue

The internationally acclaimed Manila Chamber Singers are coming to Victoria.

The group, composed of students and non-professional singers from different vocations with a passion for choral music, will perform at the First Metropolitan United Church, 932 Balmoral Road, on Saturday, June 23, at 7 p.m.

Founded in 1999, the Manila Chamber Singers are conducted by William Cordero and they will be competing at the International Kathuamixw Choral Festival in Powell River from July 3to 7.

The festival is the largest choral festival in Canada and more than 1,200 singers from around the world will be sharing their music, culture and friendship at this event.

Their repertoire at this concert will include Philippine folk and contemporary music, international songs, spiritual and popular songs.

Manila Chamber Singers have represented the Philippines in various international choir festivals and at competitions in Europe and Asia where they won many awards, most recently, the Grand Prix at the 2011 Antalya International Choral Festival held in Turkey.

The performance is sponsored by the Bayanihan Cultural and Housing Society.

Tickets are $20 and are available at the door before the concert.
