Madz Concert here in Victoria

We just came from a concert of The University of the Philippines Madrigal Singers. What a beautiful and encouraging performance. Entirely from memory and beautifully produced vocally from start to finish from the silent blend of bass and tenor in the opening plainsong Ubi Caritas, to the full sung orchestra of Rossini and even Nessun Dorma!. There are lots of unofficial items on line - Circle of Life from the Lion King shows the hilarious scope of their animal imitations. This video gives an idea of what they do - but the whole concert tonight is not reproducible with a selection from u-tube for the fun we had - and this from two ultra-critical choristers!

Update via Sallie Cabrera: The UP Madrigal Singers will be performing July 2 at 8:00pm at the River Rock Casino Resort (8811 River Road, Richmond, BC V6X, Canada)
