Philippine Madrigal Singers bag top prize at Int’l Choral Competition

The Philippine Madrigal Singers took home the grand prize at the 64th International Choral Competition at Arezzo, Italy.
The group bagged the first prize in three of the four categories (Compulsory Program, Musica Sacra, Monographic Music), and second prize in Secular Music.
Aside from this, they also won Best Performance of a Renaissance Piece. They were Listening Committee's Choice for both Folk Song and Pop Song/Colours categories.
They were also Public's Choice in the latter.
The said win qualifies the group to compete with five other choirs in the European Grand Prix in 2017, to be held in Tolosa, Spain.

The group is the first choir in the world to win the European Grand Prix twice, in 1997 and 2007.  Rose-An Jessica Dioquino/BM, GMA News
