In an effort to provide a venue for creative self-expression, the Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) organized the Glee for Gold as part of the celebration of the Mandaue Business Month 2015 and the Chamber’s 50th anniversary this year.
In partnership with the Cebu Provincial Government and Mandaue City Government, MCCI designed this chorale competition to give an opportunity for people of all ages to express themselves through singing and dancing and develop character through teamwork and discipline.
MCCI is now calling for submission of forms. The deadline is Aug. 20. The audition day is on Aug. 22 while the announcement of finalists is on Aug. 24. The Finals Night will be on Sept. 12.
The contest is open to all MCCI members and non-member companies, schools, organizations and Mandaue City barangays. Each team should have a minimum of eight members and a maximum of 16.
Participants will be judged according to originality, mastery and vocal quality, choreography, costume and audience impact.
Registration fees vary: P500 for Mandaue City barangays, P800 for schools and universities, P1,000 for MCCI member companies, and P2,500 for MCCI non-member companies.
Big prizes await the contestants since MCCI will be giving out P50,000 for the champion, P30,000 for the first placer and P20,000 for the second placer. All winners will get a trophy. The non-winning teams will get a consolation prize of P5,000.
