Concert King MARTIN NIEVERA was an unexpected surprise, having made time from his holiday vacation to help Immaculate Heart of Mary Church's fundraising concert. The spirit of the season shines in the performers faces. Click the photos on the right to see larger images.
IHMC Music Director PETE AVENDAÑO prepped not one but two choirs--his award-winning IHM Children's Choir and the younger IHM Cherubim.
IHMC Pastor Rev. Fr. RODEL BALAGTAS proudly poses in front of the Alex Theatre Marquee. Together with other IHM priests, he premiered a new song written by IHM's own cantor MIKE ZUÑIGA "Dito Tayo Mag Pasko."
To the rafters!
Little did we know that people would come in droves to the 1,400 seat Alex Theatre! The successful event helped raise much needed funds for Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and School.
Just like Santa, IHMC had its little helpers--helping to hand out free souvenir programs to the audience.
She gets the job done! Technical Director PADSY PADRE kept the show running smoothly. Here she is in the pre-show sound check, flanked by headliner MON DAVID (leftmost) and Special Guest MARTIN NIEVERA (rightmost).
Behind the scenes!
Here is a rare glimpse backstage, just about before Martin makes his entrance to a cheering crowd. TED BENITO (leftmost) was instrumental in running the pre-show pictorial. Artist and Production Manager ANNIE NEPOMUCENO (in blue) was on hand to do the voicevers on Technical Director PADSY PADRE's cue (rightmost). That is the voiceover microphone next to Padsy.
Thanks to the team!
Making the concert merry and bright was a hardworking team !
