About Me

My photo
It is said that among the arts, music has the most universal appeal and acceptance. The Filipino people are heirs to a musical legacy that embodies their collective consciousness, their hopes and dreams, their trials and triumphs, their aspirations for a better life. These are echoed in the songs they sing and in the instruments they play, which truly become a vital force in creating harmony among the culturally-diverse people like the Filipinos.

Brief History of the University of Makati

The University of Makati is a public university locally-funded by the Makati City government originally established in 1972 (Mun. Res. No. 242, Ordinance No. 64) as the Makati Polytechnic College. In response to the growing demands for more curricular program offerings, the Polytechnic Community College was elevated to the status of a full-blown college in 1987 and was renamed Makati College.

On January 10, 1990, a merger with former Fort Andres Bonifacio College at Barangay West Rembo paved the way for the transformation of Makati College into a university. By virtue of Municipal Ordinance No. 433, Pamantasan ng Makati became a chartered University on December 19, 1991 under the administration of Mayor Jejomar C. Binay. On August 27, 2002, City Ordinance No. 2002-111 approved the change of the official name of Pamantasan ng Makati (PNM) to University of Makati (UMak) to give the school a sophisticated image towards global excellence.

As the premier university of Makati, it is serving an average of 11,000 students coming from the marginalized families in Makati and nearby cities.

Background of the University of Makati Chorale Madz Et Al

Formally organized in 2003, the University of Makati Chorale is the only school-based acapella vocal ensemble of the University and the City of Makati. Over the years, the Chorale has developed a reputation for its remarkable interpretation of vocal musical literature – from classical to contemporary, from gospel to standards, from kundiman to OPM. With an unbroken blend of male and female voices ranging from the first soprano to second bass, the group has already made a name not only for the University but for the City as well with its remarkable performances.

Today, the group has matured from merely a singing group, composed of indigent but musically-gifted youth, that aspired to provide entertainment to a group propelled by a mission to respond to the cultural aspirations of Makati as its ambassador of goodwill. With this challenge, coupled with its new vision to become world renowned singing ambassadors, they would like to responsively commit to make a difference - to bring more honors not only to the University, but most importantly, to the City of Makati.

In February 2007, the Chorale engaged the services of Prof. Elsie Z. Eranista, a BS-Music graduate, magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines, and an alumna of the Philippine Madrigal Singers (PMS) and a member of the PMS batch who won the Grand Prix in Europe chorale competition (1998), as choir conductor/trainer. As such, they have been undergoing rigorous training supervised by this world-famous singing group. In October 2007, the University of Makati Chorale was formally introduced as the newest member of Madz Et Al, a family of choir organization handled by the Philippine Madrigal Singers and now ready to embark in international choral competitions.

Some of the group’s outstanding achievements:


Grand Finalist - 1st Runner-Up- Magandang Tanghali Bayan’s “Minus-All, an acapella competition at ABS-CBN and
The Filipino Channel (TFC) (December 2003)

Winner - “Sama-samang Boses” – a Christmas Carol Chorale competition (December 2003) sponsored by
Mayor Sonny Belmonte of Quezon City

Regular Choir - Intercontinental Manila, Philippine Senate , and Intl. Relations Dept., Office of the Mayor


First & Third Runner-Up – “Paskong Himig 2007 sa Lungsod ng Pasig/”Paskong-Pasko sa Metro Manila 2007” - Department of Tourism-NCR (Dec. 12 and 13, 2007).
First Grand Champion – “Himig Pasko 2007” Acapella Challenge – Sunshine Media Network-DZAR (December 22, 2007)

Music


My
Ghostly
Heart.......

Little


Tiny specs of time
Float in and out of my mind
Little flashes of memory
Invade the night's peace

The buzzes of music
Pester me day and night
Relentless pounding
The voices tell me to sleep
But the music pumps me awake

The two sides of my mind
That fight for complete control
Are thrown into my inner chaos
Since I struggle to contain myself

Words attempt to rip out of
My closed mouth
I can't let them pass
Cause if I do
All hell will break loose

Both sides agree
That something needs to be done
But my last slice of will power
Holds them back
I can't lose control.

Appeared


the music floats from my friends party steady beats rapid beats
the night cloudy, hot and humid
the party dull, my drink to warm
the she appeared in her white hoodie and light blue jeans
her perfume sorounded me
the music flowed through me
i ask her to dance
the hours passed dancing and murmuring
the she vanishes without a trace and left me all alone
with only a kiss to remind me
of the girl in the sudden night

Life


If music is poetry...
And poetry is life...
Music must be life.

I had a guitar once
But now I have a heap of ashes.

Either


Rose-cheek'd Laura, come,
Sing thou smoothly with thy beauty's
Silent music, either other
Sweetly gracing.

Lovely forms do flow
From concent divinely framed;
Heav'n is music, and thy beauty's
Birth is heavenly.

These dull notes we sing
Discords need for helps to grace them;
Only beauty purely loving
Knows no discord,

But still moves delight,
Like clear springs renew'd by flowing,
Ever perfect, ever in them-
Selves eternal.

Return


dance dance dance
it's time for
a little romance
chance chance chance
catch my eye
and return my glance

dance dance dance
the music puts
me in a trance
do the mambo
with me baby
come on baby
let's dance

Ever


Orpheus with his lute made trees,
And the mountain tops that freeze,
Bow themselves, when he did sing:
To his music plants and flowers
Ever sprung; as sun and showers
There had made a lasting spring.

Everything that heard him play,
Even the billows of the sea,
Hung their heads, and then lay by.
In sweet music is such art,
Killing care and grief of heart
Fall asleep, or hearing, die.

Seems


It always seems so nice
To listen to some music
It seems to be so relaxing
It seems to settle the nerves

It seems to be so nice
To have music in the background
To keep you at your job
To help you kick back and relax

But, music can be dangerous
If played to loud
Or in a confined area
Because it is noise

Molded

music made me
molded me to who i am
music modifies the way i think
its what i do its what i feel
how i think what i say
why i am here
i need to make music
its how i survive why i wake up
in the morning what makes my body move
it tells me
music made me

Understand

Music, the greatest good that mortals know,
And all of the heaven we have below......
Music, is the mediator between spiritual,
And sensual life..........
Music, is well said to be the speech of angels....

It is not necessary to understand Music.....
It is the only necessary that one enjoy it..............

Dance with me
Take my hand pull me close
caress my body with your

As the music plays
press your lips upon mine
Let the music take control
dance with passion
As our body's become
entwine
Feel the fire of desire
that burns within
Move with the music
let it slowly guide
your hands
The music controls
are bodies
Our passions begging
to be released
Will you dance with

let me hear the rose-scented air
being cut into shapes by your limber body

let me hear you twirl gently
let me see your tutu, fanning sunshine
that came through an open window
let me hear your softly sighing soul
as you move to notes far greater than mine

let us watch as your dancing troupe
brings life to music, brings music to sight
sweeping the mirrored stage with long musical arms
'is this that music? ' we wonder
we long for more of this art

let us hear you dance
