CFAD professor pays tribute to Las Piñas Bamboo Organ

COLLEGE of Fine Arts and Design professor Noli Vicedo paid tribute to his childhood past in an art exhibit at the ancient St. Joseph’s Church in Las Pinas City where he once sang as a child chorister and member of the Las Pinas Boys Choir accompanied by the world-famous Bamboo Organ.

“An Artist’s Tribute to the Bamboo Organ,” which ran Feb. 19 to 27 at the Bamboo Organ Museum, was a side show to the 40th International Bamboo Organ Festival. It consisted of 10 paintings showing romantic evocations of Las Pinas Church and the international music festival built around its celebrated bamboo organ, the only one of its kind in the world.

Gains and lessons of 4th papal visit to UST

THE VISIT last Jan. 18 of Pope Francis reaffirmed UST’s status as a Pontifical University and the center of Catholic education not only in the Philippines but in Asia. The latter status was more than underscored when the Pope held a meeting with other Christian groups and with leaders of other religions on campus. Truly the papal visit trained the world’s spotlight on UST as a world-class university and a global hub of learning and dialogue on key concerns affecting humanity.

Even before the Vatican officially announced last July that the Pope would visit the Philippines, word had already leaked that for the fourth time, the Vicar of Christ would address the young people of the Philippines and Asia on campus, repeating in the process the gestures of his predecessors, notably Pope, now Blessed, Paul VI, who came in 1970, and Pope, now Saint, John Paul II, who came twice, in 1981 and 1995.
