This is part of the Philippine National Antem played by the Silliman University Marching Band during their Colors of Christmas concert in Davao City two years ago. I and Ace never miss the chance to watch SU Band’s concerts in the city. The first time I watched SU Marching Band’s concert is during my university years in USM. Their rendition of the National Anthem made me teary-eyed. I don’t know but I get emotional when I hear a beautiful rendition either accapella or instrumental of Lupang Hinirang.
Silliman University marching band has a special place in Ace’ heart because he was once a member of it. He plays the trumpet. When he recounts his SU experiences, being one of the band members is always the highlight. I must say he is so passionate about it that until now owning one of the best trumpets is one his dreams. He hasn’t played in years but I am sure he still knows to play it. His eyes spark every time he sees a trumpet, and gets thrilled when he lays his hand on it. I am sure he will be over the moon when he receives a trumpet as a gift. I’m actually thinking about giving him one but I won’t mention here when because he’s reading my blogs! Soon, honey….you’ll get your one of your dreams – to have your own trumpet!
