Nearly 2 years ago, I finished my studies and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Arts from Angelicum College in Quezon City.
I’ve learned a good deal in my field in the duration of my learning journey, and leaving the campus behind was a complete heartbreak. The people, the routine I was used to for four wonderful years, and the activities I participated in have all been in the back of my mind since I graduated. No one can really forget the memories of school.
Among the many activities I had been part of and had organised during my student life, CommCert is my absolute favourite.
CommCert is a witty juxtaposition of the words communication and concert that is annually organised by the Communications Department of UST Angelicum, formerly Angelicum College. It is a fundraising concert produced by students with celebrity guests and student performers from the college. The proceeds of the event go to charity such as Gawad Kalinga and Children’s Joy Foundation.
I am proud to be part of the production team of the very first Commcert, which was held in 2014. I was a Junior then, a complete newbie, and a human representation of the meme “I have no idea what I’m doing.” Of course, our beloved mentors were there to guide us along the way, so I came through. We all came through. Since then, it has been tradition to see the annual Commcert, and has always been the talk of the students in the campus and outsiders alike.
And after 3 years, Commcert is standing stronger than ever, and students are becoming better producers, directors, and ultimately, performers.
This year, CommCert 2017 brings its audience a new batch of talents, not just performers, but the whole production itself.
For this year’s Commcert, the Communication Program of UST Angelicum College in cooperation with the college department will be staging its annual fundraising concert, titled: “CommCert 2017” on December 1, 2017 (Friday), 5:00pm – 8:30pm at the St. Vincent Ferrer Gymnasium. This is for the benefit of Buhay at Yaman ni San Martin de Porres (Bulacan) and the continuous improvement of UST Angelicum College’s infrastructures and facilities.
Guest celebrities include 1:43, Yesha Camile, and Donnalyn Bartolome.
