‘Hugyaw’ concert-for-a-cause set for typhoon Sendong victims in Dumaguete City

by Jennifer Catan-Tilos

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 4 (PIA) -- Top musicians and artists in Negros Oriental have come together for a fund-raising concert for the victims of typhoon Sendong. The concert-for-a-cause will be held on January 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Macias Sports Center, Capitol Area, Dumaguete City.

The event is dubbed “Hugyaw! sa Panaghiusa-Kalipay-Paglaum” and features the best talents in the province, said Glynda Descuatan, one of the concert organizers.

Proceeds of the concert will be used for the tents, construction materials and other necessary supplies for those houses which were totally or partially damaged of the typhoon.

Entrance fee is P50.

“This is for a more lasting solution to the problem of dislocation. While relief efforts are ongoing, there is the greater challenge of re-building these communities. Some of the families now cramped inside chapels or day-care centers, or stay with relatives who can barely support their own families," said Descuatan. "Some have set up camp in vacant lots.”

To make the program unique and more meaningful, Descuatan explained, it is segregated in three parts. One part called "Panaghiusa" involves audience participation, community singing and getting-together activities. There will also be live band accompaniment from the Youth Band Z’MAR, of Sibulan United Church of Christ in the Philippines.

Kalipay segment will also feature dance groups, winners of local, regional and national contests and the choir groups of corporations. There will also be a fashion show.

The third part is Paglaum which will feature testimonies of hope from affected families, plus videos and photos taken by various groups to be played on the wide screens, among others.

The organizers request the public to support the concert-for-a-cause to help the typhoon Sendong victims in Dumaguete City. (PIA/JCT)
