UPSCA Choir, 1953 with Prof Antonio Molina
The video below by the UP Madrigal singers performing the Prayers of St Francis reminds me of my college days and the UP Student Catholic Action (UPSCA) choir during my college years from 1952-1956 at UP Diliman, Quezon City Philippines. I do not have videos of our UPSCA concerts, but just photographs( below) of my college days. If you are in some of the photos, I would like to hear from you!
The following are some of the photos during my college years at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines from 1952-1956. My involvement with the activities of UP Student Catholic Action (UPSCA) were the highlights of my college life experiences. At that time I was studying for my Bachelor Science degree in Chemistry. I graduated in October, 1955 then went to US to pursue my Ph.D degree in 1959. The rest is history and for details of my life after my college years, please visit my site at, http://davidbkatague.blogspot.com
