Yesterday was the 3rd day for SoMA Week 2011 and the event spotlight was on the 2nd Grand SoMA awards 2011. Imagine Oscar’s night for the ABMA peeps but less glitz and glam (after all, most of us don’t bother to wear too formal attire)🙂. Awards were given to the winning entries for each categories of major multimedia arts fields (i.e. film, game, and animation).
The event was organized by Bambam Lantican with some ABMA students under the advisory of Elvert Bañares and was hosted by Paul de Vera and Krishelle Aguilar. Mostly ABMA students attended the awards night. Jannine Navarro, APC Idol Season 7 winner, and APCzicato, newly formed musical group, performed to entertain the crowd.
Here are some of the photos of what happened courtesy of Krishelle’s camera (I dunno kung sino nagpicture) :
And here’s our group’s intermission number with our rendition of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. I performed alongside Dinah Ressureccion (yung babaeng nakaskirt at nakacurls :D), Ace Amalejo (yung nakacoat sa tabi ko), Chugz Jaudian (ang lalakeng nakalunok ng beatbox haha), and I forgot the name of the pianist (SORRY KUYA! I’ll update this as soon as get your name🙂 ). Honestly, we had less than a week to rehearse the piece since we have different free time. Bam, our ‘manager’ was almost close to the brink of breakdown when he couldn’t get us all. But thank God at least before the program we were able to practice. Ansaya magperform kasi ramdam namin sa audience na amazed sila. Kahit hindi namin perfected yung performance, at least we have inspired them. And we also have our group name. We call ourselves APCzicato, derived from the word pizzicato which is a method in playing string instruments wherein you pluck the string to create sound (parang guitara lang). You can get the idea at 2:48 – 3:02🙂
Sana makainspire kami ng mga students to unleash their musical talents particularly those who have interest in classical music. As far as I’m aware, there are few students whom I know that can play classical music instruments. Parang ang mainstream instruments kasi ay yung rock band stuff like electric guitar, bass, and drums. So we have the goal to tap the individuals who play violins, viola, cello (wala pa akong nakikilala sa APC na natugtog nito), woodwind, piano etc and put them on spotlight🙂 And why not incorporate classical and modern like we did? Masaya di ba? Cool🙂
Congratulations to the winners of 2nd Grand SoMA Awards🙂 And our group is looking forward for another performance🙂 Thanks also to Bam and his committee for allowing me to be part of the program; kina Ace, Chugz, Dinah, at kay kuya pianista; Krishelle for the pictures, and Jannine for the video🙂 And thanks to God, Amen😀 (Parang tumaggap lang ng awards sa Oscar’s eh no? Haha!)
Hot like Mexico, rejoice!
