One of the premiere musical groups in the University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) staged their 18th anniversary concert on Tuesday, November 8 at the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences Audio-Visual Hall (CFOS AV Hall).
UPV Choristers, or Kore, held an hour and a half long concert directed by Christian Catalan, performing select songs from their past recitals namely Salut d’ Amore, Anthem, Playback, Wicked, and Soundtrip. A total of 20 were performed during the event including songs with video messages from Kore alumni and members in between.
Kore President Reyna Frances Ortiz shared that “Damo complications natabo before the concert, actually wala ko nag expect na super successful ang concert after,” adding that the support of the audience helped lift the spirits of the performers making their concert a success.
(There were a lot of complications before the concert. Actually I did not expect that the concert would be super successful after.)
Ortiz revealed that Kore still has a lot in store after their “debut” with an upcoming concert in Antique and a possible concert collaboration with UPV Hublag or UPV Rhapsody next semester.
