Musica FEUropa is Far Eastern University’s annual choral competition and festival supported by the European Union. Initially named as the European Union Choral Competition in the Philippines when the competition began in 2009 when there were only four (4) participants mostly from Manila, the name was later changed to Musica FEUropa in 2011. In the span of nine (9) years, Musica FEUropa has strengthened its hold as one of the most prestigious choral competitions in the country. Now on its 10th year, the competition will once again be the battleground of the best choirs in the Philippines, from high school choirs to university, church, company, government, and other choirs around the country.
The key criterion for Musica FEUROPA is that each choir has to sing two songs: one from any EU composer and one from the Philippines. In the last nine years, choirs sang songs in different European languages such as Czech, Latvian, English, Basque, Spanish, Italian, German, Finnish, French, French-Flemish, Flemish, Hungarian, Lithuanian as well as different Filipino languages such as Tagalog, Cebuano, Bisaya, Ifugao, Ilokano, Itneg, Kinaray-a, T’boli, Maguindanaoan, Yakan and Hiligaynon.
Musica FEUROPA 10 takes place on May 26 and 27, 2018 in the newly restored historic Auditorium of Far Eastern University, Manila.
