Voci Celesti - A Night to Remember

Voci Celesti: A Night to Remember ver 2.0 " is a fund-raising concert of the Saint John Bosco Parish and Center for Young Workers in Santa Rosa, Laguna featuring the Loboc Children's Choir  with the Children & Youth Choir of our parish and  Rev. Fr. Ting Miciano, SDB, on August 17, 2019 at 7pm in Enchanting Events Place of Enchanted Kingdom.

The Loboc Choir started way back in 1980.  Ms. Alma Fernando-Taldo, a fifth grade English and Character Education teacher founded the Loboc Children’s Choir. What started simply as a way to grace the small town of Loboc, Bohol with melodies and festivities eventually became one of the country’s symbols of pride and joy in the world of music. 

Numbering at around 30 gifted children, aged 9-15 years old, they have ventured into the music world to share with the public their unique talents and have since become one of the gems of the country.

Over the course of 39 years, they have competed and won several singing contests, both nationally and internationally, including the “national champion” award in the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) in 1993, 1995, and 2001. Their renowned success led to them being called the “cultural treasure” of Bohol. Eventually, they had their first-ever international tour in Europe in 2006, and from its success, the choir released their cover album, “... And A Child’s Heart Sings.”

Bound by their philosophy to inspire hearts and minds everywhere through music, they also take the time to visit people in homes for the aged, hospitals, orphanages, and prisons, aside from competitions and regular performances for tourists looking for tunes in Bohol.

Also performing are two local choirs of Saint John Bosco Parish.  The first is the Pastol ng Bayan Children's Choir. This group was formed through their three principles of discipline, diligence, and determination, and has been singing every Sunday at the 10:30am mass. In addition to performing in church, they also participated in the “Holiday Cards” Christmas concert in Vista Mall Sta. Rosa, last December 2016. They won 1st Runner-Up in the “Voice of the Village Chorale Competition” in Filinvest City in the same month. 

The other youth choir, the Bosconian Voices Chorale, was formed in 2013.  The chorale currently sings during the 4:45pm Sunday mass. Composed of 15 talented individuals, they also recently had their mini concert last March 2015 entitled “Kapit Tinig sa Iisang Himig”, and they participated in the fund raising “Christmas Cantata” last December 2017.

Music knows no limitations. From various cultures, to geographical boundaries, music has touched the hearts and souls of countless people worldwide. Here in our home country, the Philippines, music remains as an essential aspect of our everyday lives. We sing and we dance for every occasion.  The Loboc Children’s Choir will be performing various tunes made by our fellow countrymen, from our very own shores. They will sing a beautiful rendition arranged by Ed Mangulat of Florante’s “Handog”; “Ikaw ang Mahal Ko”, a wonderful love song arranged by T. Arevalo and I.C. Ongsiako, and is written by National Artist Levi Celerio; a version of the Filipino folk song titled “Katakataka” by Santiago Suarez and Redentor L. Romero; and a rendition from National Artist, Mr.Ryan Cayabyab, and co-arranged by Fr. Arnold Zamora, about loving and caring for the environment, “Take us to the land called Paraiso!”

So come and have fun this coming August 17.  Enjoy the good music and at the same time, participate in this fund-raising campaign of our parish.  Hoping to see all there!!!
