Sillimanians performed in a Christmas concert called “Himig ng Pasko,” last Dec. 10 at the Audio-Visual Theatre 1.
“Himig ng Pasko” was organized by the Talumpati ng Taon (TNT) foundation in partnership with Heart for a Child Project of Miss Silliman 2015, Genin Amiscaray.
All proceeds from this event will go to Project Abakada, a project by the TNT foundation, for their outreach program in Siaton over the Christmas break.
Christian Futalan, Silliman Idol 2016 winner and one of the performers during the event said,” It’s really fulfilling, to know nga this event is for the children in my hometown, in Siaton. It makes me happy nga makatabang ko.”
Besides Futalan, former Silliman Idol contestants and various students from the university including the junior and senior high school also performed at the concert.
Renz Macion, founder of the Talumpati ng Taon foundation said, “Since it is Christmas, so it is all about giving.”
“[The performers] are not aid [sic]. They are just here to give their hearts out. Mao ng I am really thankful to the performers who are here tonight. Kay without them this wouldn’t be possible jud,” Macion added.
Dearly Naong, a junior medical technology student and one of the audience said, “The show was nice and entertaining. The singers were very good. It feels great that you can lend a hand to children with the small amount of money.”
