OH YES, IT’S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - October 19, 2019 - 12:00am

The Friends for Cultural Concerns of the Philippines (FCCP), led by its diligent president Mimi Valerio, recently held a momentous thanksgiving tea musical at the North Forbes Pavilion in Makati City. The annual event inculcates better appreciation for arts and culture among members and showcases the exceptional talents of the club scholars enrolled in performing arts courses. As the FCCP celebrates its Ruby Anniversary, the club deemed it fitting to feature UST Singers, a multi-awarded choir and two-time world choral competition champion as the sole guest performer in the program.
