Ethnomusicologist Priscilla Magdamo-Abraham on The Art of the Visayan Song
Renowned ethnomusicologist Priscilla Magdamo
is slated to lecture on “The Art of the Visayan Song” for the Albert Faurot Lecture Series for Culture and the Arts this 1 December 2014
, Monday at 10 AM at the College of Performing and Visual Arts Music Sala in Silliman University, Dumaguete City.
Ms. Magdamo completed Bachelor’s degrees in biology and music at Silliman University, and her Masters in voice and ethnomusicology at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. She is a Certified McClosky Voice Technician. As an active professional musician, she has performed, recorded, and toured nationally and internationally with professional choral and chamber ensembles such as The Gregg Smith Singers, The New York Vocal Ensemble, and the John Biggs Consort, and various other groups.
Her extensive collection of Philippine Visayan folk songs and traditional music of ethnic groups of southern Philippines is a source for performers, composers, and arrangers. As a performer, she introduced this music as well as Philippine folk tales and myths to schoolchildren in the United States and abroad. Her arrangements of folk songs have been included in the international touring repertoire of several Philippine choral ensembles.
She has returned to the Philippines several times to hold workshops in singing and promoting traditional music in public schools, private colleges, church organisations, and teachers’ conferences. She and husband, Frederick Abraham, live in Vermont where she teaches privately, continues to arrange Visayan songs, and occasionally performs traditional music at schools and community gatherings.
The lecture series, named after Dr. Albert Faurot, is a regular offering of the Silliman University Cultural Affairs Committee, and is open to the public for free!
