UP Singing Ambassadors held concert in Belgium

The country’s multi-awarded choir, University of the Philippines Singing Ambassadors (UPSA) recently held a two-day concert in Verviers and Liege, in Belgium to conclude its 5th European tour. They earned nothing but standing ovations and accolades in both performances.

The audience, some even came all the way from Germany and Luxembourg, were simply amazed with the group’s ability to sing songs in foreign languages such as Denn er Hat Seinen Engeln Befohlen (Dutch), Mundi renovation (Italian) and La Vie En Rose (French). They were also moved when the choir sang Kalesa, Galawgaw and Joyful which is from the film Sister Act.

But the group’s rendition of The Prayer, This is the Moment, You Raised Me Up and Dahil sa ‘yo captured everyone’s heart.

The group won 2 grand prizes, 7 first prizes and 3 third prizes from different choral competitions in France, Czech Republic, Spain and Italy.
