The Philippine Tenors wowed CDO with Classical Music
February 24, 2016 by admin
The Philippine Tenors composed of Sherwin Sozon, Kenneth Cataylo, Conrado Calnea Ong III, and John Ocampos powerfully rendered their own versions of “You Raise Me Up”, “Magsimula Ka”, “Sana Maulit Muli” and “The Prayer” during their concert last February 19, 2016, Friday 7PM at the Rodelsa Hall, Liceo de Cagayan University.
They have touched a variety of genres and interpreted new arrangements of classics with medleys in Broadway songs and Opera classics, together with the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) Praise & Worship team as their song instrumentalists. And through out the concert, the Tenors not only showcased their singing prowess, they also kept the event lively with humorous intervals.
Before the formation of the Philippine Tenors in 2014, they were classically trained soloists. It was their mutual passion and advocacy in promoting classical singing and opera plus their shared friendship that brought them together and decided to form as one.
They have guested on many high profile events including (1) the 60th Anniversary celebration of the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Inc., (2) the FFCCCII’s celebration of the Philippines’ 116thIndependence day, and (3) the 13th Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day – events attended by President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Cojuangco Aquino III (PNoy), Joseph Estrada and Fidel Ramos.
They have performed in Hao Bang at the Mall of Asia (MoA) and recently in the Chinese New Year celebration of Shangri-La Plaza, an upscale-luxury shopping mall in Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong, Philippines which was one of their biggest breaks.
It was certainly a night that shouldn’t be missed. After all, they could be the Philippine version of the famous group Il Divo!
