The Philippine Madrigal Singers was first organized in 1963 by National Artist Professor Andrea O. Veneracion. Now with the direction of Choirmaster Mark Anthony Carpio, the choir is one of the world’s most awarded, having consistently won all the top prizes in most of the world’s prestigious choral competitions.
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.
