The students of HarpRoom were privileged to take part at the 54th National Day of Singapore hosted by the Embassy of the Republic of Singapore Manila last August 7, 2019 at the Fairmont Ballroom in Makati City.
The celebration was opened by eight harpists together with eight harps performing the Philippine and Singaporean national anthems. They also performed Sa Kabukiran, a Filipino folk song, and Home,Singapore's National Day song. They were joined by renowned soprano Stefanie Quintin who wonderfully rendered the songs with her majestic voice.
After the performance, the Singaporean Ambassador, His Excellency Gerard Ho made a toast mentioning the wonderful Philippine-Singaporean relations throughout its 54 years of existence. He was followed by the Secretary for Foreign Affairs,Teodoro Locsin, in giving a speech about Singapore's remarkable rise as an economic superpower.
The event was well attended by ambassadors of numerous embassies, the diplomatic community, and representatives of the business sector.
HarpRoom's students as young as seven years old took part in this momentous celebration of South East Asia's most vibrant economic powerhouse, a country we could all be proud of: the Republic of Singapore.
