Overcoming challenges

Pador said that singing for the gala was not a walk in the park due to the members’ individual busy schedules. 

“The challenging part was that we had to rehearse when we’re complete,” he explained. “Most of us had conflicts with schedules but we managed to make it work.”

The choir president stated that they don’t normally perform theatrical songs but the gala was a good avenue to start doing so.

Los Cantantes’ performance became the cherry on top of what was already a remarkable celebration. Their heavenly voices delighted the guests as it was the perfect accompaniment to a sumptuous supper and a fitting end to a meaningful evening.
