Medisings 2017: Music and Service

Music and service are powerful expressions of humanity. Both are expressions of healing. We sing to express unheard emotions within us. Likewise, as students, we are committed to serve the marginalized as our means to help our society be healed. Medisings, the annual inter-class singing competition organized by UP Pagsama is a testament that these two powerful expressions can exist in one epic event.

Last March 24, in line with the long week celebration of UP Pagsama Week: Kislap, UP PGH Science Hall witnessed the different representatives from different classes sang their own rendition of different musical pieces in this year's Medisings. Members of different classes were also present to support their own class representatives. The theme of Medisings this year is "Kilos Kabataan!". UP Pagsama aims to mobilize the youth to participate in addressing the different issues in the Philippine society.
