LOVE for music and country went hand-in-hand in this year’s annual Himig Tomasino, where Thomasian chorale groups battled it out to reach the highest note in the competition.

Organized by the Student Organizations Coordinating Council, this year’s chorale contest held last February 12 at the Medicine Auditorium commemorated the People Power revolution with the nationalistic theme, Ang mga Saliw ni Juan.

This year’s event saw six chorale groups – Accountancy Chorale, Chorus of Arts and Letters, Arkipella, Engineering’s One Voice, Pharmacy Glee Club, and Science Glee Club — facing off with their respective renditions of “Magkaisa” and a piece of their own choice, as they sought to reach the highest note in the contest. Apart from the championship plum, special awards were also given to acknowledge the chorale groups’ talent.

Engineering’s One Voice was the night’s champion. Accountancy Chorale and the Chorus of Arts and Letters were first and second runners-up.

Engineering also got the People’s Choice Award, which was determined by votes on Facebook, and by ticket holders.

Best Costume was won by Arts and Letters, for their custom-made Filipiniana gowns and barongs splashed with the blue color of their college.

Special awards were won by Accountancy (Best Interpretation of Concert Piece) and Pharmacy’s Vincent Evangelista (Best Conductor).
