Songs, stories and poems entertained the crowd in the Finster Auditorium as the Carillon singers and the members of the Society of Ateneo Literature and English Majors (SALEM) performed in their concert entitled, “Corpus: Mga Tula at Awit: isang natatanging pagtatanghal sa pamamagitan ng artistikong pagsilip”, last Sunday, September 21.

The program had 8 parts, each bound by a common theme based on “Corpus”, the Latin word for “body”. The theme played around the notion of the human body’s inference to art, society, history, culture and peace, with different concepts, namely: Ang Katawan Bilang Kaloob at Handog; Katawan Bilang Kasangkapan ng Pananampalataya; Katawan Bilang Sisidlan ng Kasarian at Kaluluwa; Katawan Bilang Manlilikha ng Lipunan; Katawan Bilang Kulungan at Tagapagpahayag ng Damdamin; Katawan Bilang Tagapasinaya ng Kultura; Katawan Bilang Tagapagtaguyod ng Kapayapaan; and, Katawan Bilang Himpilan ng Kamatayan at Buhay.

Under each part, original poems and stories were read to the audience, and songs were alternately performed by the Carillon, giving life to the clubs’ overall performance. Among the subjects described in the eight-part play included that of innocence, sexuality, respect and dignity, childhood, oppression, and sanity.

The event was organized by the Ateneo de Davao University Glee Club, in partnership with SALEM. Mr. Arjay Viray conducted the Carillon choir, while Ms. Hazel Hamile headed the SALEM group.

“This event was really fascinating, because I got to see normal students from this university that I see almost every day at school, but I didn’t realize they had this kind of talent. I didn’t expect them to be so [talented], but now that I’ve seen them onstage, it’s like they’re showing a totally different person aside from them being students in this university,” said Giyan Somozo, a first year Mass Communication student.

End the silence of the gagged!
