COLEGIO DE STA. ROSA-MAKATI GOLDEN JUBILEE CONCERT

This year marks the 50th Founding Anniversary of Colegio de Sta. Rosa-Makati and as a kick off for this celebration, they will be having an anniversary concert on Sunday, January 26, 2013 at Concert at the Park. Ms. Rhea Dela Ostia hosts this regular Sunday concert at the Rizal Park Open Air Auditorium. Admission is free.

CSR-Makati traces its roots to CSR-Intramuros, Manila which it regards as the parent school. CSR-Intramuros opened on August 30, 1750 and through the years, it has survived the political upheavals in our country’s history and passed through several periods in its direction and management. Under the able management of the Daughters of Charity, CSR continued to give Christian formation to young Filipino girls until World War II, when the battle of Manila, between the Japanese and American forces, its school buildings were totally destroyed. The school bulding was reconstructed in 1948; the school reopened with the Sisters of the Congregation of the Servants of St. Joseph managing it. In 1964, these sisters responded to the demands for a Catholic institution in the then growing municipality of Makati. With Mo. Alfonsa Vilches, SSJ, as Mother Superior and school head, three Sisters and one lay teacher, the school was officially opened in July 1964. CSR-Makati continued to prosper and gain prestige as a standard school. In 1981, the management of school was given to the Augustinian Recollect Sisters. By and large, CSR-Makati with God’s blessings, prospered tremendously. To date, both the Grade School and High School Departments are awarded Level 2 Accreditation status by the PAASCU.

 Showcasing the Filipino heritage through their singing and dancing talents, the Roseña family has prepared the following program: ROSAS PANDAN (Arr. George Hernandez); UGOY NG DUYAN (L.D. San Pedro/L. Celerio); MULAN (L. Nacario); ANAK (F. Aguilar; Arr. John August Pamintuan); THE PRAYER (D. Foster); UPUAN (Arr. Arjay Viray); INIIBIG KITA (C. Cayabyab); ROSABENGA; ROAR (Arr. Jude Roldan); and HIMNO DEL COLEGIO DE STA. ROSA.

Concert at the Park is a weekly public service project of the Department of Tourism, under Sec. Ramon Jimenez, Jr., and the National Parks Development Committee (NPDC), under Executive Director Elizabeth H. Espino. Admission to Concert at the Park is free of charge.
