The UP Alumni Association (UPAA), in cooperation with the Upsilon Sigma Phi Fraternity, is staging the fourth presentation of the Carillon Concert Seasons – “Merry KrizzMadz” – featuring the internationally awarded UP Madrigal Singers, on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, at 6:30 p.m., at the UP Carillon Plaza, UP Diliman, Quezon City.
The UP Madrigals took home the grand prize at the 64th International Choral Competition held recently in Arezzo, Italy. They copped 1st prize in 3 of the 4 categories (Compulsory Program, Musica Sacra, Monographic Music), and 2nd prize in Secular Music. The win qualifies them with five other choirs in the 2017 European Grand Prix in Tolosa, Spain. (The UP Madrigals is the first choir in the world to win the European Grand Prix twice – in 1997 and 2007.)
The UPAA Carillon Concerts are staged free of charge for the UP Community and all music-lovers through the generous contributions of UP alumni and friends, with part of the proceeds from sponsorships going to the maintenance and conservation of a most precious of icons – the UP Carillon.
