BANDA MORRIZ of Morong, Rizal is one of the thriving bands in the Philippines. With 60 full-time members from this historic town, the band is a typical town group which produces quality music which is a fusion of traditional and modern harmony, complemented by synchronicity and elegance.
Fortunately, the band qualified as the only Philippine representative to participate in the 2008 Chiayi International Band Festival which will be held from December 20, 2008 to January 1, 2009 in Chiayi City, Taiwan. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the band members to showcase their gift for music, thus promoting the Filipino culture in the global arena.
But sending a contingent with sixty (60) members abroad would entail expenses for uniform, airfare, not to mention the food as well as the accommodation. The following are relatively safe estimates for the trip.
Uniform: 60 pax X P 3,500 = P 210,000
Airfare: 60 pax X P12,600 = P 756,000
Travel Tax: 60 pax X P 1,620 = P 97,200
Terminal Fee: 60 pax X P 750 = P 45,000
Visa Fee: 60 pax X P 2,000 = P 120,000
We are therefore knocking at your benevolent heart to help send the band to join the festival in Taiwan. Please consider giving an amount you can share. Your contribution will go along way in making the dream of this historic town band become a reality!
