Philippine Madrigal Singers perform Sunday

The Philippine Madrigal Singers, an internationally acclaimed choir, will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday in the Boutell Memorial Concert Hall in the Music Building at Northern Illinois University.

Their performance is co-sponsored by the NIU Asian American Center and Kishwaukee College. The performance is free and open to the public.

Founded in 1963 at the University of the Philippines, the Philippine Madrigal Singers (commonly known as “MADZ”) is composed of students, faculty and alumni from the university. Their performance is distinctive with the performers seated in a semi-circle with no conductor. Their repertoire includes selections from classic arrangements to contemporary music, for example the medieval prayer “Anima Christi” to music from Disney’s “The Lion King.”

The group is on a performance tour of the United States, celebrating their 50th year of bringing the world together through their remarkable talent.

For more information on the performance, call Michelle Bringas, NIU Asian American Center, at 815-752-1167 or Evelina Jose Cichy, Kishwaukee College, at 815-825-2086, ext. 3790. For more information on MADZ, visit www.philippinemadrigalsingers.com.
