On Nov 6, 2015, when the Masaya National High School celebrated their 2nd assembly, Card Giving and Oath-taking ceremony for the officers of their Parents and Teachers Association, Goducate musicians were invited to play for the event. The school had known of the Goducate music program since 2011, when some of their students then were part of the program. But the school had a pleasant surprise when they found out that 4 of the 6 musicians who turned up for the event were current students at the school. The other 2 were alumni of the school.
The four current students were Ericka Laus and Loween Ricafort, both grade 7 students at the school and Blessina Suncaya and Sonny Boy Espanola both grade 8 students, and all were violinists. The other two, Manuel Factor and Rea Cabalfin, are volunteer workers at Goducate Laguna, who were glad to be able to show their gratitude to their alma mater by playing for the event.
The principal and teachers were very pleased with their students’ musical performance and look forward to more performances by Goducate musicians. Goducate hopes that our musicians’ love for music and dedication to learning to play an instrument will be an inspiration to others.
