KALINANGAN YOUTH FOUNDATION, INC.


Kalinangan Youth Foundation, Inc. (KALFI) is a non-stock and non-profit NGO
accredited by the Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC). It was
established in 1983 to promote the professional, cultural, personal, and spiritual
development of high school girls as well as university and young professional
women. It organizes educational projects in cooperation with study and cultural
centers in Metro Manila and other key cities in the Philippines, and with
counterpart organizations abroad.

Kalinangan suggests the laborious task of cultivating rough terrain for its fruitful
use. KALFI, in turn, believes that the youth are worth this task -- preparing the
ground well and keeping it fertile for them -- so that the seeds of education
flourish into fruitful knowledge and responsible service in society.

KALFI accomplishes its mission-vision through five Study Center projects: the
Balanghai Study Center in Pasig, the Tahilan Residence and University Center in
Manila, the Iraya Study Center in Sta. Mesa Heights, the Daniw Study Center in
Katipunan and the Banilad Study Center in Cebu.

PROJECT: BRAVE KIDS
Cancer chooses no one and sometimes, it afflicts even the most innocent
among us: our children. Once diagnosed with the dreaded disease, children are
thrown into a totally different world, one even adults fear. It is a world wherein
the struggle for life is felt daily, where every little step can be crucial.

One of these children is Seve Perez. In September 2005 – one month after
turning 3 years old – Seve was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.

Seve had to undergo one of the most difficult medical treatments,


chemotherapy. He met his doctors more than his teachers, visited hospitals and
laboratories more than parks and playgrounds, and had to endure sleeping on
hospital beds instead of his own.

Despite these trials, Seve  remained cheerful and playful, very active and
inquisitive like any boy his age. He showed tremendous courage facing his
affliction. In March 2008, exactly 890 days after diagnosis, and after 1,000
needles, Seve was declared in complete remission.  For the next five (5) years,
Seve will undergo regular checkups, and only after 5 years without treatment
will the doctors declare him medically cured. With the blessing of the Almighty,
Seve will grow up like any regular boy, with dreams and aspirations, though
armed with unique experience - that even now, is bringing out firm resolve from
him that he will help other children so that no child will suffer as much as he did.  

However touching Seve’s story may be, it is not unique. He is just one of
thousands who suffer from childhood cancer in the Philippines. And like Seve,
these children are forced to battle their cancer each and every day. This battle
sometimes takes years, and is always a very costly one – making it doubly hard
for the children and their families.

The courageous spirit of Seve and over a thousand other children who gamely
battle cancer have inspired Seve’s parents, Paul and Sigrid Perez, to establish
Project: Brave Kids.

The Philippine Madrigal Singers


The University of the Philippines Madrigal Singers was organized in 1963 by
National Artist Professor Andrea O. Veneracion. The group is composed of
students, faculty and alumni from the different colleges of the University of the
Philippines. The choir is one of the Asia’s most awarded, having consistently won
all the top prizes in most of the world’s most prestigious choral competitions :
Arezzo and Gorizia in Italy, Marktoberdorf in Germany, Spittal in Austria, Neuchatel
in Switzerland, Tours in France, Varna in Bulgaria, Debrecen in Hungary,
Cantonigros and Torrevieja in Spain. They hold the distinction of being the first
choir in the world to win the European Grand Prix of Choral Singing twice; first in
1997 and more recently, in August of 2007.

The ensemble performs a wide repertoire of various styles and forms : renaissance
music, classical music, Filipino and international folksongs, contemporary and
avant-garde music, opera and even popular music. Their specialization and focus
on the madrigal idiom has inspired their unique set-up of singing, while seated in a
semi-circle, without a conductor.

Through the direction of Mark Anthony Carpio, the corps of composers and choral
arrangers of the UP Madrigal Singers continue to produce new compositions and
choral settings of Philippine and Asian songs, thus contributing to the growth of
choral literature in Asia.

It is expressions of dedication – such as this advocacy and the Madz’ constant


reaching out to local and international audiences – that have allowed the Madz to
find even more meaning in their musical ministry. All this culminated in a new
milestone for the Madz, as they were officially recognized as UNESCO Artist for
Peace in July of 2009. The Philippine Madrigal Singers have thus been charged
with the mission of supporting UNESCO programs on cultural diversity and
intercultural dialogue, continuing to serve as examples and ambassadors as part
of bringing the choral dream to full fruition.

Mark Anthony A. Carpio, Choirmaster
Mark Anthony Carpio’s tenure as the current Choirmaster of the Philippine
Madrigal Singers began in 2001. However, his solid credentials and
considerable experience, which all stand behind his, have been in place for
quite some time before that.
Having always had a strong love for music and performance as a boy soprano,
he spent most of his childhood taking extensive lessons in the use of the piano
and flute. His prowess was then further honed at the University of the
Philippines, where he became a Piano major at the College of Music as a
scholar in good standing of the Music Promotion Foundation and of the Jovita
Fuentes MusiCultural Society. After graduating cum laude in 1992, he would
return to the College of Music as a faculty member of the Piano Department –
and begin to form what is now a long-standing bond with the Philippine
Madrigal Singers. Starting out with the Madz as a tenor, he continued to grow in
skill and dedication and is currently a faculty member of the college’s Choral
Conducting Department.

A very capable countertenor on his own, Mr. Carpio embodies the Madz spirit
of discipline and dedication when it comes to perfecting his craft and sharing it
to others. He has spent the last several years conducting the Kilyawan Boys
Choir and leading them to several considerable successes and performances of
their own, recently in the 2008 World Choir Games in Graz, Austria. His
expertise and focus have also made him a sought-after choral clinician,
consultant, workshop master and judge for choral events both locally and
internationally.

What is love?
