Kanto-wide Pista Ng Musika kicks off in Chiba

A series of songfests dubbed Pista ng Musika will be held in Chiba, Ibaraki, Tokyo and other places in the Kanto area. Organized with the support of ABS-CBN Japan, which has just launched a full-blast operation in Japan with its video-on-demand service TFCko, this series of song competition will kick off April 21 at the Anhony’s Live House Disco Resto Bar in Tomisato City sa Chiba Pref., adjacent to Narita City and about an hour drive or train ride from Chiba City.

Prizes in cash and in kind await victorious participants. Finalists will have a chance to sing with real stars at a big ABS-CBN concert tentatively scheduled in the latter half of this year in Tokyo. Winners will be judged on criteria 65% of which are related to voice quality and performance and 35% on audience vote.

  Gracing the championship of the first Pista ng Musika on August 28, 2000 in Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Pref., former Ambassador Romeo Arguelles showed his keyboard skills and vocal range.
