This year, the San Lorenzo Ruiz Choir of New York is celebrating its 5th Anniversary as an organization that aims to enrich Christian faith and Philippine culture through music. This occasion coincides with the 25th year of sainthood of San Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila, after whom the choir is named.
To commemorate these occasions, the choir will be having a concert entitled “5@25” on 29 September 2012 at 7:30 pm to be held at the Church of the Ascension located at 86-13 55th Avenue, Elmhurst, NY 11373. Aside from being a thanksgiving celebration, the event is also intended to be a fundraiser for victims of the severe floods in the Philippines, specially those who were affected by Tropical Monsoon Habagat last July. The repertoire will feature inspirational, classical, broadway and OPM favorites.
Under the General Artistic Direction of Rogelio B. Peñaverde Jr., a professional opera singer currently based in New York, and the Music Direction of Enrico Lagasca and Leo Leal, both alumni members of the Philippine Madrigal Singers, the choir will receive the distinction of being a Heritage Awardee of The Outstanding Filipino Americans in New York Foundation this October. This is in recognition of its steadfast contribution toward enriching the cultural identity of Filipino Americans in the New York area. It has also received citations from the PhilDev Foundation for its valuable contributions to charitable causes.
