THE U.P. SINGING AMBASSADORS IN LAKBAY-MUSIKA


With Edgardo Lumbera Maguiat, founder/conductor

The University of the Philippines Singing Ambassadors (UPSA) is one of the Philippines' foremost choral groups. In its 37 years of existence, UPSA has consistently brought honor and prestige to the country, having won several grand prizes and various awards in competitions all over the world. Its triumph in the Guido d’Arezzo”= Polyphonic Competition in 2001 in Arezzo, Italy, qualified UPSA to compete in the 14th European Grand Prix (EGP) for Choral Singing in 2002, the most coveted choral prize in the world. This makes the choir one of the only four Filipino choirs (with the Philippine Madrigal Singers, Ateneo Glee Club, and UST Singers) to attain eligibility to contend in the world’s most coveted choral prize. UPSA Conductor Ed Manguiat founded the group in 1980 as a freshman dormitory choir at the State University. He has studied under world-renowned choral musicians and trained under respected names in vocal pedagogy and choral conducting in the Philippines. He has also won various international conductor's awards in choral competitions. The UPSA was elevated to the Hall of Fame at the 25th the 2012 ALIW Awards in the Philippines for winning its 3rd Best Choral Group (2011, 2010, and 2002) given by the Aliw Awards Foundation, the pioneer in giving tributes for excellence and achievements in the live entertainment industry. Also, UPSA was the official entry of the Philippines to the 2005 UNESCO International Music Prize in Paris. It was named the Best University Choir in 2012 and 2004 at the “Who’s Who in the Philippines” 19th and 27th Consumers’ Choice Awards, respectively.
