August 2007 opened another opportunity to explore other possibilities. Never realized that I would someday be in another chorale group. A month before I joined my new employer, I sang a song entitled, “Someone Like You,” from Jekyll and Hyde accompanied by Ateneo Chamber Singers during the wedding of Ruth (now a Happy Feet member). It was the very same song that I sang during my audition before Ed Nepomuceno, musical director of Transchorale, composer and former member of the Philippine Madrigal Singers (Madz). I was nervous. Who wouldn’t? TransChorale members, although not in the room, were listening outside. To my surprise, I heard clapping hands from the chorale members. I was asked by the musical director to sit and practice with them right away. An experience that will be forever etched in my mind. The rest is history.
