A Life Shaped By Music: Andrea Ofilada Veneracion And The Philippine Madrigal Singers
A book about National Artist for Music Andrea O. Veneracion and her lifework as founder and choirmaster of the Philippine Madrigal Singers. Poet Marjorie Evasco weaves the multi-colored strands of more than 37 years of history, chronicling the choir's history from their first performance in 1963 at the U.P. Theatre, to their international breakthrough concert in 1969 at the New York Lincoln Center, up to the many victories in the most prestigious choral competitions in Europe and North America from 1971 to 1989. The choirmaster guided the choir to work towards higher levels of musicianship, and in 1996 they won the Grand Prix in the Tolosa (Spain) Choral competition, earning them the right to represent Tolosa in the 1997 Europèen du Chant Choral in Tours, France. In 1997, Veneracion and the Philippine Madrigal Singers won the European Grand Prix in Tours, France -- the best of the world's most accomplished choirs. The book also shows how the artistic sensibility of Veneracion influenced the field of choral music in the Philippines, the Asia-Pacific region, and the rest of the world.
