TRENDING: Musical flash mob serenades Manila train commuters

MANILA– Regular commute in the metropolis is a hassle, there’s no need to expound that.  So the Cultural Center of the Philippines in coordination with the Light Rail Transit Authority pull off a wonderful idea to bring art and culture experience to the public and make one commute remarkable to the lucky riders.

Last June 3, 2016 at 4 in the afternoon, the seemingly ordinary train ride from Recto Station went viral online as members from Sing Philippines Youth Choir (SPYC) burst into a musical performance with their version of The Dawn’s “Iisang Bangka” backed by the dabakan (Philippine drum). 

“Oh diba, mas maganda pag may art sa buhay natin?”

The performers composing of a hundred talented and young members from different provinces and localities in the country is part of the SPYC’s week-long Music Camp, which is under the professional chorale cliniquing of MADZ choirmaster Mark Anthony Carpio. The Sing Philippines movement brings in harmony and united in songs and the musical flash mob in LRT2 is a gift from the artists to the public to encourage them to participate in art making and appreciation of artistic excellences.
