the Rehearsals

So after picking out 12 competitors from 22 applicants last January 14, 2008 then came rehearsals. this is a sample of how rehearsals were conducted, the practice studio at the 4th floor of the Manila Film Center wasn't able to meet the schedule so we hauled the band equipment and the sound system in my office and our musical director Terence Guillermo rehearsed the January Finalists with our in-house band BLACK PIPE.

For more than a week, everybody had to bear with the constant banging and playing in my office.

It was quite difficult as well for everyone since we had to cut down the songs to approximately 2 minutes each so we can only play the highlights and whichever highlight the singer wanted to show off. After a week, it turrned out pretty well. Today, the sound system was delivered and installed at the main theatre of the manila film center. Tonight, everybody is on overtime to refurbish the set design and the other technical requirements of tomorrow's show.

Admission is free... so see you all in a while.
