Madz Fanboy

I have been watching the Philippine Madrigal Singers (Madz) perform live for years. Because cameras are forbidden inside the concert hall (of the Cultural Centre of the Philippines), I could only take images before or after a concert. The following is a collection of the iconic Madz semicircle chair formation taken at different concert events. Some venues like the Abelardo Hall Auditorium in UP Diliman permit spectators to take images during a performance, thus I have a “tangible” memory of Madz.

The girls take the stage literally.

 

Madz 89 Reunion Concert, 04 August 2013, AHA

The most decorated batch of Madz put up a reunion concert, dubbed the first and perhaps the only reunion concert they could make; Madz founder Andrea Veneracion had not lived to see this.

This logo of Madz (UPMS stands for University of the Philippines Madrigal Singers) has since become a regular fixture in their concerts.

This concert included various guests and celebrities. Lani Misalucha and Katsie Llave are seen in this image.

At this concert, Madz performed newly composed and arranged songs. The background seemed a sun rising ushering forth a new morning.

Too bad I haven’t an image of their Premiere concert on 06 October 2013. And I had other Madz experiences ante-2013. I didn’t have a camera then I think.
