KALINANGAN YOUTH FOUNDATION, INC. Kalinangan Youth Foundation, Inc. (KALFI) is a non-stock and non-profit NGO accredited by the Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC). It was established in 1983 to promote the professional, cultural, personal, and spiritual development of high school girls as well as university and young professional women. It organizes educational projects in cooperation with study and cultural centers in Metro Manila and other key cities in the Philippines, and with counterpart organizations abroad. Kalinangan suggests the laborious task of cultivating rough terrain for its fruitful use. KALFI, in turn, believes that the youth are worth this task -- preparing the ground well and keeping it fertile for them -- so that the seeds of education flourish into fruitful knowledge and responsible service in society. KALFI accomplishes its mission-vision through five Study Center projects: the Balanghai Study Center in Pasig, the Tahilan Residence and University Center in Manila, the Iraya Study Center in Sta. Mesa Heights, the Daniw Study Center in Katipunan and the Banilad Study Center in Cebu.

PROJECT: BRAVE KIDS Cancer chooses no one and sometimes, it afflicts even the most innocent among us: our children. Once diagnosed with the dreaded disease, children are thrown into a totally different world, one even adults fear. It is a world wherein the struggle for life is felt daily, where every little step can be crucial. One of these children is Seve Perez. In September 2005 – one month after turning 3 years old – Seve was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Seve had to undergo one of the most difficult medical treatments, chemotherapy. He met his doctors more than his teachers, visited hospitals and laboratories more than parks and playgrounds, and had to endure sleeping on hospital beds instead of his own. Despite these trials, Seve  remained cheerful and playful, very active and inquisitive like any boy his age. He showed tremendous courage facing his affliction. In March 2008, exactly 890 days after diagnosis, and after 1,000 needles, Seve was declared in complete remission.  For the next five (5) years, Seve will undergo regular checkups, and only after 5 years without treatment will the doctors declare him medically cured. With the blessing of the Almighty, Seve will grow up like any regular boy, with dreams and aspirations, though armed with unique experience - that even now, is bringing out firm resolve from him that he will help other children so that no child will suffer as much as he did.   However touching Seve’s story may be, it is not unique. He is just one of thousands who suffer from childhood cancer in the Philippines. And like Seve, these children are forced to battle their cancer each and every day. This battle sometimes takes years, and is always a very costly one – making it doubly hard for the children and their families. The courageous spirit of Seve and over a thousand other children who gamely battle cancer have inspired Seve’s parents, Paul and Sigrid Perez, to establish Project: Brave Kids.

The Philippine Madrigal Singers The University of the Philippines Madrigal Singers was organized in 1963 by National Artist Professor Andrea O. Veneracion. The group is composed of students, faculty and alumni from the different colleges of the University of the Philippines. The choir is one of the Asia’s most awarded, having consistently won all the top prizes in most of the world’s most prestigious choral competitions : Arezzo and Gorizia in Italy, Marktoberdorf in Germany, Spittal in Austria, Neuchatel in Switzerland, Tours in France, Varna in Bulgaria, Debrecen in Hungary, Cantonigros and Torrevieja in Spain. They hold the distinction of being the first choir in the world to win the European Grand Prix of Choral Singing twice; first in 1997 and more recently, in August of 2007. The ensemble performs a wide repertoire of various styles and forms : renaissance music, classical music, Filipino and international folksongs, contemporary and avant-garde music, opera and even popular music. Their specialization and focus on the madrigal idiom has inspired their unique set-up of singing, while seated in a semi-circle, without a conductor. Through the direction of Mark Anthony Carpio, the corps of composers and choral arrangers of the UP Madrigal Singers continue to produce new compositions and choral settings of Philippine and Asian songs, thus contributing to the growth of choral literature in Asia. It is expressions of dedication – such as this advocacy and the Madz’ constant reaching out to local and international audiences – that have allowed the Madz to find even more meaning in their musical ministry. All this culminated in a new milestone for the Madz, as they were officially recognized as UNESCO Artist for Peace in July of 2009. The Philippine Madrigal Singers have thus been charged with the mission of supporting UNESCO programs on cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue, continuing to serve as examples and ambassadors as part of bringing the choral dream to full fruition.

Mark Anthony A. Carpio, Choirmaster Mark Anthony Carpio’s tenure as the current Choirmaster of the Philippine Madrigal Singers began in 2001. However, his solid credentials and considerable experience, which all stand behind his, have been in place for quite some time before that. Having always had a strong love for music and performance as a boy soprano, he spent most of his childhood taking extensive lessons in the use of the piano and flute. His prowess was then further honed at the University of the Philippines, where he became a Piano major at the College of Music as a scholar in good standing of the Music Promotion Foundation and of the Jovita Fuentes MusiCultural Society. After graduating cum laude in 1992, he would return to the College of Music as a faculty member of the Piano Department – and begin to form what is now a long-standing bond with the Philippine Madrigal Singers. Starting out with the Madz as a tenor, he continued to grow in skill and dedication and is currently a faculty member of the college’s Choral Conducting Department. A very capable countertenor on his own, Mr. Carpio embodies the Madz spirit of discipline and dedication when it comes to perfecting his craft and sharing it to others. He has spent the last several years conducting the Kilyawan Boys Choir and leading them to several considerable successes and performances of their own, recently in the 2008 World Choir Games in Graz, Austria. His expertise and focus have also made him a sought-after choral clinician, consultant, workshop master and judge for choral events both locally and internationally.
