A-Cappella Group "The Filharmonic"
WHAT'S YOUR PERSONAL STORY?
We've all had different paths, but two common threads in our paths are the importance of music in Filipino culture and the effect that school has had in guiding us to pursue music. We were all music nerds in grade school and we have stuck with it. For instance, Jules started singing because he registered for middle school late and was thrown into choir against his will. However, he fell in love with it and hasn't stopped singing since.
WHAT STORIES DO YOU TELL THROUGH YOUR SINGING?
The great thing about doing a cappella covers is that we can take a pop hit on the radio and tell a completely different story just by the musical nuances we decide to put into our version. Each song in our show tells a different story whether it's a story of love or heartbreak. But we think one of the biggest themes we touch on in our show is having a great time and living life. We tell that story through several of our covers and especially in our first original song "Get Up And Go”, which is all about going out a enjoying what life has to offer.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO SING?
otivation from singing comes from the joy of just simply making music. It's never been a hobby for us, it's always been a passion. With that said, We're easily motivated to sing because some of us have done it our entire lives and want to continue to keep at it. We enjoy performing and singing with as a group and being able to share it with an audience, that's motivation enough for us.
