Awit at Bigkas Pinoy Choral Festival

The Awit at Bigkas Pinoy Choral Festival showcased the skills and talents of the urban poor youth in music and in the performing arts. Made up of competitions in choral singing and choral recitation, it featured entries from high schools in various depressed areas in Metro Manila and nearby localities.

The theme for the competitions was “Patuloy na Paghilom Tungo sa Pagsulong.” This was anchored on one of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's 10-point agenda, particularly the healing of wounds brought about by the divisions caused by EDSA I, II and III, and in the need to learn the lessons of unity and courage from these events.
