THE HOUSE of Representatives has passed a resolution lauding the UST Singers for again winning the prestigious Choir of the World award.

Valenzuela Congressman Magtanggol Gunigundo, author of the resolution, recognized the choir’s achievement as champion in the 63rd Llangollen International Music Eisteddfod held in the United Kingdom last April. Llangolen is the biggest and oldest music festival in the world.

House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte gave the award to the conductor of the UST Singers, Fidel Calalang Jr., last August 31. The singers, in return, gave the legislators a sample of their winning performance.

The UST Singers first won the Choir of the World Prize in 1995. It is the only Asian choir that has won the much-coveted title.

The UST Singers also won four first place awards in the Bangor International Festival and two first places in the Festival Internacional de Musica in Cantonigros, Spain, where it dominated the Polyphony and Folklore categories.

The singers went on a European tour from April to June. Justine Cyhnna V. Garcia
