Vox Orphanorum Continues to Bring Music to the People

Now in their 5th Year of singing, since their official launching into the mainstream of religious and public service, Vox Orphanorum continues to enthrall their audience on stage and church performances.           

Upon invitation of Fr. Dexter Pomada, Parish Priest of Palanas, Tanjay City, Vox sang back-to-back with their parish choir during the fiesta Mass Celebrated by Bishop John F. Du of the Diocese of Dumaguete last May 3, 2011.  The people in Palanas, happy and amazed by the angelic voices of the choir, invited the group to stage a concert.
Last September 15, 2011, Vox Orphanorum came back to serenade the parishioners of Palanas for a concert as a fundraising for both the Parish and Casa Miani. The church was filled with an awed audience who clamored incessantly for more songs at the end of the repertoire. The concert started at 8:00 pm and ended at 10:00 pm with the Vox performing 3 encores.
To mark the 5th year anniversary of the choir, the music director, Jeremias Perez proposed for another concert at Silliman University’s Luce Auditorium and commissioned the symphonic band of Negros Oriental State University to provide accompaniment for this anniversary concert. Furthermore, Vox was joined center stage by another choir composed of businessmen and professionals, the BCBP-North Music Ministry.
The repertoire of the religious and inspirational songs, folk tunes, love ballads, and Christmas carols left the audience mesmerized and captivated. Show critics and reviews could only say that they find the show “too short.” Little did they know that the concert was already an hour and forty minutes long.
As the school year ends, two of the schools in Dumaguete City had invited the children to sing for their baccalaureate masses: Negros Maritime College and Dumaguete City Central Elementary School. Through singing in various events, the Vox Orphanorum find new friends and witness great and touching moments of some people.
