I'll try to take pics of our school this Sunday.
tsong kung aircon lahat ng room sa ateneo, doble babayaran natin dun. kung gusto mo bawiin yung binayad mo, magcomputer ka sa RSF ng 5 oras straight. diba may athletics fee pa? o gamitin mo yung weights room after 4:30 daily. Kumuha ka lagi ng kopya ng matanglawin, heights, at guidon dahil binabayaran mo rin yun.

LUCE AUDITORIUM

The Luce Auditorium in Silliman University is hailed by international and local artists as one of best auditoriums of the country and a counterpart to the Cultural Center of the Philippines. This air-conditioned edifice, with a 923-seating capacity, was inaugurated on October 6, 1974. The auditorium is known as the most modern and sophisticated infrastructure for the performing arts outside Metro Manila and is noted for its impressive acoustics. Foreign and local artists regularly play here contributing to the holistic education of the students and exposing them to different genres and music and art appreciation. Donated by Henry Luce, owner of TIME Magazine, to Silliman University and named after his late wife, Claire Isabel.

According to Henry Luce on the February 20, 2000 issue of New York Times, "Many people say that the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium (named for my late wife) at Silliman University is the best performance space in the Philippines outside of Manila." link




(cameras are not allowed inside Luce Auditorium especially during performance)


Some performances for this semester and on which season passes are honored. (just some additions on ritche's earlier post)



JULY 20

Grace Nono and the Kahayag Dance Troupe in 'Sangbuhay

Philippine roots artist Grace Nono performs her signature indigenous sound which has made her an icon of the local alternative rock subculture. Her brand of music—which is completely at odds with most of the country’s American-leaning pop music—offers something different for the mainstream. Her combination of Filipino and Western arrangements make her a unique and vital artist. She performs together with the Silliman University Kahayag Dance Troupe, with choreophraphy by Ronnie Mirabueno inspired by her style of world music. This concert is produced in cooperation with SinagTala.



JULY 31

Ingrid Sala Santamaria and Reynaldo G. Reyes in Romantic Piano Journey

Pianists and music pedagogues Reynaldo G. Reyes and Ingrid Sala Santamaria embark on their 14th Romantic Piano Concerto Journey Tour with this concert as highlight. The tour is a 2-piano educational presentation focusing on the music of the Romantic Period (1800-1900). Their repertoire includes many of the era’s representative composers such as Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Grieg, Liszt,Mendelssohn, MacDowell, Rachmaninoff, Schumann, Saint Saens, and Tchaikovsky. Works by Filipino composers Buencamino and Santiago are included.



AUGUST 1

Michael Dadap in Mostly Pinoy: Serenades for the Guitar

The acclaimed New York-based classical guitarist, composer, and conductor comes home to Silliman to gives a special concert.



AUGUST 25

Silliman Performs in Tunay na Ligaya

For its Founders Day cultural highlight, Silliman University gathers some of its best soloists and musical performing groups to pay tribute to the best songs by some of the country’s renowned composers, from Ryan Cayabyab to George Canseco to Willy Cruz to Ogie Alcasid. A veritable parade of the best in Original Pilipino Music, the concert is meant as an exploration of the Filipino’s musical heart and soul. The musical direction is by Elizabeth Susan Vista-Suarez.



SEPTEMBER 7 AND 8

The Manila Symphony Orchestra In Concert

The Manila Symphony Orchestra is the oldest symphony orchestra in the Philippines. Born 75 years ago, the MSO holds a very rich history. It boasts of musician members whose talents have been nurtured through the Philippine Research for Developing Instrumental Soloists and the Manila Youth Symphony Orchestra. Despite its age and history, the MSO boasts of having the youngest professional musicans in the country. This bright group of young musicians are passionate about their craft and eager to share their various musical tastes—including modern contemporary arrangements like jazz, rock and pop and Broadway pieces.



SEPTEMBER 21

The New Voice Company in Eve Ensler's The Good Body

Botox, bulimia, breast implants: Eve Ensler, author of the international sensation The ****** Monologues, is back, this time to rock our view of what it means to have a “good body.” It starts with Eve’s tortured relationship with her own “post-forties” stomach and her skirmishes with everything from Ab Rollers to fad diets and fascistic trainers in an attempt get the “flabby badness” out. She is joined by the voices of women from L.A. to Kabul, whose obsessions are also laid bare: a young Latina candidly critiques her humiliating “spread,” a stubborn layer of fat that she calls “a second pair of thighs”; the wife of a plastic surgeon recounts being systematically reconstructed—inch by inch—by her “perfectionist” husband; and many others. Ultimately, these monologues become a personal wake-up call from Eve to love the “good bodies” we inhabit. This play is produced in cooperation with the New Voice Company.

Entablado-Ateneo presents: "Buwan at Baril" by Chris Millado

Entablado presents “Buwan at Baril,” Aug. 16-Sept. 1
date posted: 2007-07-30 10:50:44


Ateneo-ENTABLADO (ENterteynment para sa TAo, Bayan, LAnsangan at DiyOs) opens its 26th Repertory Season with the staging of Chris Millado’s “Buwan at Baril,” a CCP award winning piece, from August 16 until September 1, 2007 at the Rizal Mini Theater, Ateneo Loyola Heights campus.

The play portrays the lives of Filipinos from the different sectors of society. It features the lives of eight Filipino citizens: the middle aged Manggagawa (laborer) and his Magsasaka (farmer) brother, both fighting for their rights at the Martsa ng Bayan (People’s March); a Priest and a Babaeng Itawis (a member of the Ibanag tribe) brought together by fate, trying to escape the harsh reality of the past; an Asawa (wife), who has to pretend that she’s a cousin of her husband just so she could fetch his remains; a middle class Socialite who is divided by her political beliefs and her social status; a former subversive who’s now a part of the Police and a Student Activist who tries to get his way out of the police station but is surprised to see that his interrogator was once a man of his kind.

Director Allan Forte, apprentice and assistant director of multi-awarded film director Marilou Diaz-Abaya, takes this EDSA People Power masterpiece into the present. Studded with actors and actresses from ENTABLADO and the Ateneo Community, “Buwan at Baril” promises its mature audience a different look on social involvement and awareness. “Buwan at Baril” will also bring back its audience to the Marcos Era, as it showcases the arsenal of Philippine Protest Theater.

The play runs from August 16 until September 1, every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:00 p.m., with a 3:00 p.m. matinee show every Saturday. For inquiries and reservations, please call or text 0918.2494543 (Kalil Almonte), 426-6001 local 5421 (Entablado Room) or 5121 (Rizal Mini Theater) or email the company at [email protected].

Free wifi inside Silliman campus (for now)


A student enjoying free wifi access inside the Silliman Library.

According to Globe executives, though there are other campuses in the country having a tie up with Globe Handyphone (cellphone services), their tie up with Silliman is the first in the country in terms of comprehensiveness of the deal and offerings (MySilliman SIM, campus wide wifi services as well as 2101 hotline).

Silliman Inks MOU with Texas Tech University

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) exploring opportunities for nursing faculty and student exchange has been signed between Silliman University and Texas Tech University in July in Lubbock, Texas, USA.

The MoU was signed by Silliman President Ben S. Malayang III, during his visit to Canada and the United States for the Tipon 2007, a gathering of alumni in North America once every two years. Signing the MoU from Texas Tech University were President Bernhard Mittemeyer and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing (TTUHSC SON) Dean Alexia Green.

Under the MoU, “TTUHSC SON will allow use of an agreed upon number of faculty, particularly at the graduate level, for delivery of specific courses both on-site at Silliman University in Dumaguete City and through the use of distance learning technology.”

Both universities will also pursue potentials for faculty exchanges to address specific educational program development needs, and for student exchanges to enhance student learning and prepare graduates for increasing globalization of the health care market.

Silliman University and Texas Tech University will also collaborate in any research and programmatic opportunities and endeavors that are congruent with each institutions mission and goals.

The Adventist University of the Philippines Ambassadors Chorale Arts Society

Just wanted to share this, it's a rehearsal video of my cousins' university choral group when they went to Thailand to participate in some choral competition recently. Here they are rehearsing a Thai song ("Lao Duang Duen"), don't understand a thing but the melody is so soothing and relaxing.

I added some captions bai. I'll take more photos once I have the time. I couldn't take some photos of the other places a while ago due to the Sunday clean-up. They were cutting trees and leaves were all over.
