UST Nursing Chorale Stages Comeback in Himig Tomasino

By: Hazel Vera Tan

After three years of being away from the limelight, the UST Nursing Chorale (UST-NC) participated in this year’s Himig Tomasino, an annual intercollegiate competition organized by the Student Organization Coordinating Council's (SOCC), held last February 19 at the Medicine Auditorium.

Though they still had some conflicts with their schedules in lecture classes and duties, they were able to resolve the problems and challenges that they previously met. “In every organization, there are problems and challenges,” UST-NC President Charlene Tabora said, “I guess some of the reasons why we only joined now was due to financial constraints and lack of preparation because as nursing students, it really is very difficult to budget our time and balance extracurricular activities with the curricular ones.”

But with much perseverance and lessons learned from the previous year, the Nursing Chorale has staged its much-awaited comeback. “Once the team for Himig Tomasino was already formed, we already started with our practices,” she said. Also vital to their participation was the support and encouragement received from their adviser, Ms. Estelle Rose M. Lerma, RN, MAN and their new conductress, Ms. Victoria Ro. M. Katigbak.

Though their efforts were valiant, the Nursing Chorale fell short and the UST High School Glee Club emerged as the champions followed by the runners-up, UST Chorus of arts and Letters, and the UST One Voice Engineering Chorale.

Although, UST-NC was not fortunate enough to place in this year’s competition, their spirits were not dampened and they had smiles fixated all over their faces as friends, families and fellow students greeted them in the holding room after the show.

“We aimed to place in the 2011 Himig Tomasino and each of us gave our best very best. In the end, we just lifted everything to God. We’re all thankful and proud that we were able to compete again and represent our organization, alumni, and most especially out college in front of our families, supporters and opponents.”
True enough, although they did not bring home the bacon, they fought well. Good job UST-NC!
