Currently in Royal Oak, Michigan, near Detroit. Reci, Eliza and Ate Mae V and I are staying at our foster parent/brod Dr. Josef Cortez, Phi 96B, and his wife Stella. Si Ate Mimi and Kuya Karl ang nagtake ng wedding photos nila. It’s a small world after all. =)
It is the morning after our FIRST concert last night. Everything’s still surreal. I can’t believe that we’re done with our Michigan concert! Parang kailan lang, nagpapractice kami 20 hrs a day sa San Francisco, and now, tapos na! We actually sounded great, and everyone was singing their hearts out. Buti na lang maganda yung acoustics sa church na kinanatahan namin. Effortless ang pagkanta. Hehe. 😀
The audience loved it. But I still think we really need a lot to improve on, pitch and rhythm wise. Hindi pa kasi yun ang full potential ng tour group. Gaya nga ng sabi ni Ate Dia, “we can do better!” And I’m hoping ganun ang mngyari sa New Jersey concert namin.
For our classmates in NY-NJ area, sana makapunta kayo sa Jersey City concert namin on May 2, 7PM, sa Our Lady of Mercy Parish, 40 Sullivan Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305
We also had some PHI HIGH kagabi as 3 brods were there to watch us! Brods Josef Cortez, Ryan Pangan and George Pujalte. May isa ding sis but we didn’t get to meet her kasi she had to go home early. We had a picture taken (with 7 other medchoir sisses), pero sa cam pa ni Dada, kaya tsaka na yung pic. Hopefully in outher UPMASA chapters that we’ll visit, mas marami pa kaming ma-meet na brods and sisses!
There will be alot more performances in this tour. Last night was only 1 of them. But I’m happy and fulfilled with last night’s performance. Masaya ang feeling, hindi frustrated. Sana I get to feel that feeling again in the days to come. =)
Next stop, Jersey City, New Jersey!!!
