Did you know that in 2009, the MADZ were named as the UNESCO Artist for Peace for their extensive work towards promoting peace, cultural diversity, and understanding through music?They’ve also collaborated with other world-class choirs such as the Swingle Singers, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Coro Unibersidad de Mendoza, MIT, Yale School of Music, Calvin College, and more.
Currently under the direction of Mark Anthony Carpio, the ensemble continues to perform a wide repertoire of various styles and forms: Renaissance and Classical music, Filipino and International folksongs, contemporary and Avant-garde music, Opera and even popular music. In keeping with the madrigal idiom, the choir’s unique set up often involves performing while seated in a semi-circle, without a conductor. You name it, and they can sing it!
