Thursday anticipated a big event on a red letter day, February 9, 2007 , as the variety show approached faster than one’s realizing its materialization.
Bands, dance troupes and models all put on an extraordinary show to thousands of youths gathered in the Quadrangle and the Fr. Cortina Sports Center.
The variety show was organized in cooperation with RockEd Philippines, a non-governmental organization aiming to “educate the youth through rock culture.”
Public education awareness is the main goal of the variety show. The significance of education as a whole was promoted to the scores of adolescents.
In connection, public school students would be the main beneficiaries of the said show.
All the performers recognized the fact that the variety show had more meaning because VolumEd had a clear and significant purpose of promoting the improvement of the state of public school education in the Philippines .
Ms. Gang Badoy, RockEd head, said that she was impressed with VOYC which was focused on its objectives and visions.
Time, though, could not come to terms with the intense line-up of bands and dance troupes. Constraints invoked some misunderstandings among the members and performers.
As preparations began as early as August for the Voice of the Youth Committee, headed by Laurence Go with committee members and performers investing much time and sweat, emotions ran high when acts where cancelled towards the end of the concert.
The conclusion of VolumEd elicited mingled feelings from the audience and from backstage, but what topped the evanescent evening was the lasting advocacy for youth action in the alleviation of the problems that plague the country.
