MANILA, Philippines – Twenty-five youngsters aged eight to 12 topped singing auditions of MUSMUSIKWELA 2009, the kiddie talent search for boys and girls that could hone them into the country’s next big musical talents.

From 150 kids who sang their way through two weekend auditions in May, The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab (TMSRC) picked 25 of the most talented to go up to the next level: A musical face-off at the Teatrino on June 3 in front of event partner, the Music Museum Group, Inc. led by its president,. Precy Florentino. From the 25, 10 scholars will be chosen to enjoy full scholarships to The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab. On its 20th anniversary last year, Florentino identified the TMSRC as an institution that it would support to contribute to the ongoing identification and development of young musical talents.

“The kids are really confident. They are such good performers!” Cayabyab said of the 25 who made the cut. “The genre of their songs is also very diverse. They sang pop, R&B, standards and jazz, even classical Tagalog pieces like the kundiman. This is a remarkable batch — considering that we have just begun.”

The Top 25 kids came from Metro Manila and nearby provinces such as Laguna, Cavite and Bulacan. They are Darlene Louise Ordanza, Juan Miguel Santos, Zion Vicedo, Patricia Marie Adriano, Adrian John Angeles, Melbelline Anne Caluag, Katrina Mae llorente, Miah Isabelle Canton, Samantha Nicole Eguia, Alecx Lorica, Tracy Carreon, Stephen Tan, John Rhorick Legaspi, Kris Angelica dela Cruz, Ma. Danica Velasco, Janella Salvador, Gerard Sabinosa, Caleb John Hinanay, Anthony Gragera, Cristina de Leon, William Kertzman, Alyssa Mora, Laika Maninang, Patricia Eriana Ramos and Leon Matawaran.

The 10 best from this batch will receive scholarship grants from Music Museum for a 10-month, three-level training at TMSRC under Cayabyab.

The group will perform in a recital in September after the first level of the scholars’ training at TMSRC.
