Music for a cause Catarman’s singing priests in Manila this Christmas
The singing priests of the Diocese of Catarman invade Manila to perform at Skydome, 7 p.m. in cooperation with SM North Edsa and Sinag Arts Foundation on Dec. 11.
Known as Muziklero, they are from various parishes with a common love for music that inspired them to form the group whose aim is to spread their love for music. They also use music to recruit youth in the service of God and the community. They have also used their passion to help and serve the community and the elderly priests.
Muziklero, Christmas In The City is a benefit concert to raise funds to build Balay Pari for the elderly and sickly priests in their days of retirement and where they can be given proper medication. These retired priests have dedicated their whole lives serving God and the people. The performing priests are Reverends Alan Abalon Jr. - Diocesan Finance Officer; Wendel A. Rotamula - Prison Ministry Chaplain; Julius Augustus Balanguit - Parish priest of Our Lady of Angels Parish; Ronimo Tendoy - Co-pastor of Our lady of Annunciation Cathedral; Jimel Valera - Rector of St. John Paul II Senior High Seminary; and Fr. Ryan Paul Opeña - Parish Priest of St. Antony Padua Parish, Fr. Gervacio Osias - Parish Priest of Our Lady’s Nativity Parish.
Special guests include Madonna Decena and Renz Fernando who recently garnered medals from WCOPA, tenor Raymond Roldan, Emlyn Olfindo - stage director, singer and TV actress, from GMA 7 Talent center Nic Galano; and Cuatro Uno and Katrina Mas.
The Muziklero will serenade the audience with their own rendition of hit songs, like “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Volare,’” “Thousand Years,” “Perfect Christmas,” and many more.
They have been performing in neighboring towns in Samar and was well received and loved by the community.
