With resounding voices, the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) Choral Ensemble filled the Benguet State University (BSU) Gymnasium during their performance on October 21, 2017.

As a part of the UPLB Cultural Exchange Department’s line of activities, BSU was tagged to co-sponsor the activity titled “Korotura”.

BSU Glee Club, a student performing arts group of BSU was also featured in the said event. The songs performed were combinations of Western music to Original Pilipino Music (OPM). They also performed a rendition of a cultural chant from Kalinga.

After the performance, the UPLB Choral Ensemble sat with the members of BSU Glee Club, University of Cordilleras Chorale, Saint Louis University Glee Club, and the UP Baguio Tinig Amianan to share their knowledge and tips on chorale performance.

According to Stanley F. Anongos, Jr., Director of the Center of Culture and the Arts (CCA) there is an evident difference between the UPLB Chorale Ensemble and the BSU Glee Club. He further said that due to time constraints considering the members of the BSU Glee Club are students, Anongos expressed that there is a need for a wider exposure.

“Time-dependent ang ating mga students and faculty. Pero kung sakaling may activities for similar exposure, susuportahan natin ‘yan (Our students and faculty are time-dependent. However, if there might be any activities for student exposure, we will support),” Anongos reassured.//MDPenchog
