An ACT Special Presentation
August 4, 5:30 - SALIW HIMIG 2015 - UPCC 22nd International Goodwill Tour

ACT is incredibly fortunate to host a one-time only concert, SALIW HIMIG 2015: The University of the Philippines Concert Chorus 22nd International Goodwill Tour!

The UPCC is known as the pioneer of choreographed choral performance in the Philippines since the early '70s. With the current artistic director and conductor Prof. Janet Sabas-Aracama, the UP Concert Chorus goes beyond the typical "stand-up" choir performance style through choral art form "CHOR-EO-CAPELLA"---"CHORus CHOREOgraphed ACAPELLA" (choral works inspired by musical theater concert style, accompanied and unaccompanied). Professor Aracama creatively blended a repertoire of Classics, Spirituals, Popular and Philippine Music with movement for this Tour 2015.

Known simply as Korus, the official choir of the University of the Philippines is an internationally-competitive performing group, demonstrating versatility in singing classical, folk, pop and Broadway musical genres with signature vibrant choreography. An icon of stage performance in the Philippines, Korus is one of the Ani ng Dangal 2013 Awardees recognized by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Ranked No. 1 in the world for Folk choral performance at the 2012 Festival Internacional de Cantonigros in Spain and the recipient of the 2012 Aliw Awards Foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award, Korus soars beyond its 50th year to share its unique, fun and passionate performance to the world.

July 31-August 9 - Into the Woods

Youth and Adult casts.

A baker and his wife, childless and under an evil curse, try to find relief by journeying into the woods. They encounter a host of fairy tale characters - Rapunzel, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, and others - and learn the difficult lesson that getting what you want involves taking responsibility for it.

$15 ($12 for members).
