NAMCYA stages #galingNAMCYA

Accomplished musicians who have proven their brilliance nationally and internationally are set to perform in a concert on July 16, 2016, to showcase works by Filipino and foreign composers and raise funds for the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA).

To be held at the Little Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), the concert, titled #galingNAMCYA,  features past winners of NAMCYA, the country’s most prestigious music competition for the youth for more than 40 years.

The performers include:

  • Carlo Antonio Juan (Guitar)
  • Sara Maria Gonzales (Violin)
  • Christian Tan (Violin)
  • Kim Carl Mirandilla Ng (Viola)
  • Arnold Josue (Cello)
  • Gabriel Allan Paguirigan (Piano)
  • Luci Magalit (Piano)
  • Myramae Tapia Meneses (Soprano)
  • Antonio Maigue (Flute)
  • Gabriel Allan Paguirigan (Piano)
  • Reynato Resurreccion, Jr. (Oboe)
  • Ariel Sta. Ana (Clarinet)
  • Frenvee Andra (Bassoon)
  • Naomi Sison (Piano), and
  • Jay-ar Mesa (French Horn, guest horn player).

“We are very excited to have these NAMCYA winners perform and show that many of our world-class musicians were shaped by their experiences in NAMCYA,” said Renato Lucas, Secretary-General of NAMCYA, and who is also a past winner of the competition.

“We titled the concert #galingNAMCYA because we want people to know that these performers came from NAMCYA and that they represent the wealth of talent that NAMCYA attracts every year,” added Lucas.

“Before all these talent contests that we see today on TV, there was NAMCYA. It was where excellent musicians were discovered and nurtured to become world-class performers. NAMCYA continues to do that, and we want everyone to know that NAMCYA’s advocacy is to help our youth develop musical excellence and promote Philippine music.”

#galingNAMCYA aims to raise funds to help NAMCYA in its advocacy. Activities include the competitions and special performances in November, as well as outreach performances, workshops on Philippine music, and commissioning of new Filipino works.

#galingNAMCYA’s virtuosi will perform masterpieces of Filipino composers such as Nicanor Abelardo, Bayani M. De Leon, Manuel Velez, and Felipe P. De Leon, Sr., as well as works of foreign composers such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Paul Dukas, and Francis Poulenc.
