"Yes! We can do it!"
...is an innocent response that entails a whole gamut of experiences four generations of BC 106 broadmajors have gone through. It's an emotional ride surely not for the faint of heart.
Apt as it is with current music trends, "Soloista" is a pure marketing success (thanks to Multiply, YouTube and Yahoo!). Even though the album carries a roster of fine talented singer-songwriters, the CD didn't sell. But audiences and sponsors loved the whole concept.
So how is the fourth time around any different? Not much.
Ambitious. Yes. Dramatic. Yes. Expensive. Absolutely. Fun. U-huh. Successful. Of course. Would we do it again? Hmm.
Suffice to say, this fourth outing is a culmination of the past successes and failures of previous albums and still earns its rightful place in BC106's Hall of Fame.
It's time for this elective to evolve. Take a bow, everyone.
He won our hearts with his acoustic rendition of Ne-Yo's "So Sick" and more so with his original ditty "Fly The Night Away". In cyberspace, his audition reel garnered thousands of online views. While his childish persona takes over behind the scenes, the adorable Peter is all pro when under the limelight.
She entered the studio in her hi-heeled red pumps and snobbish aura raising several brows as she took the stage. The fashionable and gifted Ceres turned out to be a ball of talent and charisma. Her creation "Devoid of Drama" shows her incredible vocal prowess and flair for songwriting.
In the creative world, the majority is, more often than not, deceptively wrong. The cute, bubbly and rock-chic feisty Lee wouldn't have made the cut had certain democracies been exercised. "My Last Day" rises as a stellar production featuring a powerful vocal performance, amazing instrumentalists and a competent production team.
Whoa. A classical album in the College of Mass Communication? You've got to be kidding, right? We proved the naysayers wrong as this album project surpassed all our expectations in both the artistic and commercial aspect.
We have been so blessed to have executed all our plans into perfection from day one. "To produce an album that will increase awareness and support for the next generation of young classical musicians."
This batch will always be the pride and joy of their beloved teacher. This is what BC106 is all about.
There's nothing more engaging than the melody of perfectly played movements of "Sonata op. 1 nr. 8" by this amazing guitar trio.
Every once so often a classical prodigy comes along. We have been fortunate to have discovered Homer in his "pre-glory" years during our lifetime. Here's his masterful rendition of "La Catedral". We anticipate his rise in the classical music hall of fame in the near future.
There's nothing like the good `ol French violin and guitar duet "Berceuse" to complete our classical undertaking. Maestros Joshua Legaspi and Ferdinand Medina lend us their time and talent to bring us a soothing melodious piece.
