The Coro Basilica de Malolos (formerly known as the Cathedral Choir of Malolos) was founded on September 1976 by the late Ms. Ely Torralba. The group, now on its 30th year, garnered several awards and recognitions in choral music.
Now on our 30th year, we have granered several music recognitions, to top them all:
1. The choir has become the representative to the 5th and 6th Philippine Christmas Festival in Seoul, South Korea last December 2000 and 2001.
2. Won for the 3rd straight time in the CIRPS Cultural Competition, Region III.
Yes, we play live. We usually sing at the Basilica Minore of the Immaculate Conception's Sunday Mass at 5pm. We also sing in weddings and concerts. Special moments? Recently, we have recorded songs from GMA7's Encantadia and the upcoming series, Atlantica.
Musical influences? Anything! From ethnic to pop to love songs to dance and band hits as well!
Korg piano, usually.
The choir recently held its major concert last May 27, 2006 at the Bulacan Provincial Gymnasium in Malolos, Bulacan dubbed "Musikada: Mga Dekada ng Musika, Himig ng Barkada" with guests Ashley Imler and Chir Cataran, NAMCYA 2005 Champion in Vocal Solo.
