A Uniquely Pleasurable Afternoon of Music

Volunteers for Volunteers

With the help of amateur musicians who volunteered to perform in our concert “ A Uniquely Pleasurable Afternoon of Music: Volunteers for Volunteers”, and with the support from generous sponsors and friends, a successful concert was staged in The Hague at the Hogeschool Helicon last 16th of September. The matinee concert of light classical music was enjoyed by a hundred guests in a fully packed concert hall. The concert featured solo and duet singing, solo and eight-hands piano, of music from around Europe, the US and the Philippines.

We thank our volunteer performers—Wim Blackstone, Mieke van der Brugge, Nu Driz, Irma Galias, Peter Krassenburg, Ruud Looijer, Lucia Schouten, Margret Schouten, Klari Simonet, Svetlana Terpougova and Bart Wijnberg. We also thank volunteers who covered the event. With their support, UPAA-NL is closer to the goal of donating its fourth and last server to the University of the Philippines Main Library.
