Once in a Lifetime Pang-Aabuso

When I was president of the Council of Organizations of the Ateneo (COA 08-09), my only request for my birthday was for the Ateneo College Glee Club (ACGC) to sing for me.

Talk about abuse of power (Chuice!) But I am a huge fan of this world-renowned choir group and I felt that I was in the perfect position to make such request! I wanted them to sing Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin which is one of my favorite songs.

I thought only a handful of their members would come to the COA Room to do the favor together with some members of the council with a simple cake. Ay mali, I requested din pala Conti's Mango Bravo! ABUSADA.

Well it turned out that almost all members of of ACGC serenaded me along the MVP stairs while I went down and greeted everyone waiting near the lobby. May photo presentation pa.

Nagfe-feeling debutante.

Ang masarap na cake ay parang lalaki
Hindi inuurungan, nilalantakan!

Here's the video with ACGC singing Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love). Too bad I did not have a video of them singing Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin.

Almost two years after and it still feels surreal. Kinikilig pa rin ako hahah. If you guys want to catch them live before they go on their Europe Tour, here is your chance!

From their Facebook Event Page:

This year marks a milestone for the Philippine Choral World as the Ateneo de Manila College Glee Club (ACGC), the Philippines' oldest university chorale, celebrates its 90th anniversary. From April to June, the ACGC will be going around Europe for its Concert-Competition Tour, “In eXCelsis.”

During the course of the group’s preparation for the tour, the ACGC received overwhelming support from the Ateneo community. As a heartfelt ...way of giving back, the ACGC came up with the “In eXCelsis” Concert Series 2011:

• Gloria! In eXCelsis Deo
- January 15 at the Church of the Gesu, Ateneo de Manila University

• A Grand Night of Singing
- February 5 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines

• Virtus in eXCelsis
- March 5 at the PhilAm Life Auditorium

As a culmination of the group's preparations for the coming European Tour, the ACGC proudly invites you to the final leg of its "In eXCelsis" Concert Series, Virtus in eXCelsis. This send-off concert will showcase selections from the ACGC's tour repertoire and will feature the fruits of the choir's year-long preparations.

Tickets will be at Php 300 and gates will open at 6 PM. For tickets, kindly contact Fiona at 09277322242. Tickets may be purchased at P50 less for groups of 10 or more.
