It was a dream come true for the SJS Choir to train under the world-renown Philippine Madrigal Singers. The three-day exclusive choral workshop gave opportunities for the 19-member group to be coached on vocal techniques, piece analysis and other choral skills. The fruits of the workshop is something to anticipate. What's in store for Chorus Josephi? Watch out!
