Musica FEUropa 10


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.

Eric Jayson V. Asuncion of FEU-Makati discussed “Social Commerce Continuance Participation Intention Among Business Administration Students of Jose Rizal University” where he shared that in today’s digital era, social commerce platforms are the new battleground for companies to offer and market their products and services. For consumers, it spelled convenience in terms of time and effort as well as the support they got from the online community as well as its members.

Maria Carmen Lapuz shared her findings in “Performance Evaluation of Mergers Using the CAMEL Parameters: The Case of Selected Banks in the Philippines” which looked into how Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas(BSP) continues to offer incentives for weaker banks to consolidate and merge to further strengthen the banking system and minimize bank closures.

Research Collaborators, Benita A, Meneses and Dr. Marietta C. Israel, in their study, “The Generational Diversity Work Values and Beliefs in the Workplace in the Philippines”, found out that the workplace today is not as simple as that of the traditional because the modern worker’s job requires decision-making, problem-solving, trouble-shooting, and managing that may require a prioritizing of options to select the best, considering the circumstances.

Ryan Christian C. Mercado, in his study, “Employee Engagement as a Strategic Tool for Improving Productivity in the Employees BPO in Cubao, Quezon City: An Analysis” established that the current challenge of the human resources department and respective business unit managers to keep their employees motivated and highly engaged. The war for talent today has become heightened, with companies willing to be creative in attracting potential candidates to be part of their organization.


Dr. Roland M. Simbre and Rhodora D. Tabal, presented their study “Impact of High-Performance Work Practices System on Human Resource Outcomes and Organizational Performance in the Philippine Government Banks”. This showed that it is increasingly apparent that one of the keys to successful organizational performance is people within the organization and the management system that harnesses their talents and capabilities. Human resources are a primary source of competitive advantage which is difficult to imitate.

Madonna Tejada’s study, “Conglomerate Strategy, Firm Efficiency and Performance: An Analysis of Southeast Asian Conglomerates” described the level of efficiency and corporate performance of companies that belong to conglomerates in Southeast Asia.
