Bring out your tried and tested microphones

Do you still remember singing Pabasa or Pasyon, the Lenten tradition of chanting the life, passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ? Pabasa is usually sung by a group of elderly people during Holy Week. I’ve experienced joining Pabasa when I was young. The chanters usually use wireless microphones at guitarcenter.com and speakers so the message will be heard in the neighborhood where the Pabasa is held. In the absence of Pasyon chanters in your place, you can now hear Pasyon online through the website of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

Spread the Love by Reading Out Loud!

Sharing a worthwhile and inspiring activity I found through a newsletter sent by National Bookstore today. This is called Spread the Love by Reading Out Loud!

The challenge will be able to help set-up libraries throughout the country. The mechanics said that for every 75 videos posted, NBS will help set up one library in a public school. And for 7,500 videos and more, 100 public schools will get library makeovers! How amazing is that. You don’t have to spend a single centavo to purchase komplete 10 at musiciansfriend.com. All you have to do is read aloud and enjoy. 🙂 Click on the image to know more about the challenge. Thanks!
