As Christians all over prepare to usher in the Holy Week, three of the best Philippine church choirs, Imusicapella Chamber Choir, Novo Concertante Manila, and Kammerchor Manila, converge at the Cultural Center of the Philippines for Glorificamus Te on March 28, 2015, 7:00 PM at the CCP’s Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater).

This one night concert aims to emphasize the main purpose of the three choirs: to serve in liturgical celebration through music ministries, to maintain excellence in choral singing and to continue to inspire people. 

Formed in 2002, Imusicapella Chamber Choir is a non-profit, amateur, and self-supporting choir composed of young professionals & students coming from Imus & its nearby towns in Cavite under the leadership of Conductor Tristan Ignacio. They were the recipient of the “General Licerio Topacio Special Award” during the 2006 Parangal ng Bayan ng Imus for being an outstanding group of the municipality. Also, They finished as one of the top semifinalists at ABS-CBN's talent reality search- Pilipinas Got Talent (Season 1).

They were considered one of the best choirs in all music festivals they attended. And as a consistent crowd-favorite, they were given the honor of closing (being the highlight and the last choir to perform) on the said festivals.

Imusicapella has its purpose to promote, advance and uphold Philippine culture in the country and internationally through an abiding commitment to choral excellence, to carry on their goal as Cavite's Cultural Ambassadors of Goodwill . They have become steadfast in their goal of attaining choral distinction and recognition as one of the Philippines' finest vocal ensembles.

Established in 1992, Kammerchor Manila is a church-based, self-supporting organization composed of passionate and active young professionals founded by one of the country’s music pedagogues and visionaries, Prof. Fidel G. Calalang Jr. Through the years, KM has evolved to be the one of the Philippines’ premier chamber choir by sharing its long tradition of excellent choral music and continued commitment of service to God.

Recently, KM won the Absolute Winner Award 42nd Festival of Songs held in Czech Republic last June 4-7, 2014. Prior to the final round, Kammerchor Manila won four gold medals in the following categories – Mixed Choir Superior, Mixed Choir, Folklore, and Spiritual, Gospel, and Pop.

For three years now, the group is under the musical tutelage of Mr. Anthony Go-Villanueva, Assistant Conductor of UST Singers, and continues to share the gift of music through regular mass services, concerts and outreach programs.

Novo Concertante Manila, a chamber choir composed of music lovers from all walks of life, was originally established as a recital choir in 1998 headed by choirmaster Mr. Arwin M. Tan. Throughout the years, it has evolved into an ensemble and continues to reinvent itself for the development of artistically intelligent music.

In its 16-year history, Novo Concertante Manila has competed and won in several international choral competitions. Moreover, The National Commission has honored the choir three times with the “Ani ng Dangal” award for Culture and the Arts (2009, 2010, and 2013) in recognition of their achievements in the field of choral music.
