“At the beginning, we join the festival to test our team performance capability as a preparation for bigger competitions. Turns out, the result was beyond our expectation, and we managed to get 3 gold medals. In fact, we have only practiced for a rather short amount of time, only 3 months,” said Irene Christiani, a student of Management 2014, Head of UPH Choir.

UPH Choir had been established for 12 years. “To be the best choir in the world and to spread the gospel through singing” is UPH Choir’s vision that always encourage them to keep giving their best through many national or international competition.

BCIF 2017 diikuti oleh 8 negara, termasuk diantaranya Australia, Singapura, Malaysia dan China. Dilatih dengan ketat di bawah instruktur Bpk.

Mereka adalah mahasiswa angkatan 2015 dan 2016 yang baru pertama kali tampil dalam acara besar dalam skala internasional seperti ini.

Berbekal persiapan latihan intensif selama 3 bulan saja, mereka harus melewati proses yang tidak mudah di sela-sela kuliah mereka untuk tetap berlatih lima kali seminggu. 

“Awalnya tim kami mengikuti festival ini untuk menguji kemampuan performance tim sebagai persiapan kompetisi yang lebih besar. Ternyata hasilnya di luar ekspetasi bisa meraih 3 medali emas. Padahal kami berlatih cukup singkat hanya 3 bulan,” ujar Irene Christiani, mahasiswa Manajemen 2014, Ketua UPH Choir.

UPH Choir telah berdiri selama kurang lebih 12 tahun. Menjadi kelompok paduan suara terbaik di dunia dan untuk mengabarkan Injil melalui nyanyian telah adalah visi UPH Choir yang mendorong mereka untuk terus berkarya dan memberikan yang terbaik dalam berbagai ajang kompetisi nasional maupun internasional. Selamat kepada UPH Choir atas prestasi yang membanggakan, dan kiranya nama Tuhan semakin dipermuliakan! (IA)
