7101 Music Nation launches ‘2nd Elements National Singing-Songwriting Camp’

Having two violinists out of five kids, made music events close to my heart. I attended the launching of  7101 Music Nation 2nd Elements National Singing-Song writing Camp held at the Arts in the City in Taguig. 7101 Music Nation is the brainchild of three music aficionados namely it’s Artistic Director, Maestro Ryan Cayabyab; its Chief Executive Officer, established businessman Julio D. Sy Jr.; and its Chief Operating Officer, music industry maven Twinky Lagdameo. They have gathered Filipino artist and musician and promote the sharing the ideas and talents to further uplift Filipino artistry and musicality. The success of the first Element National Singing Camp last year for the songwriters made them add another track to this year event, the singing camp.

The camp is open to all aspiring singer age 18-25, while the songwriter must be 18-35, they must be residents and citizen of the Philippines. The airfare will only be from Manila to Dumaguete
There are a limited number of slots for each track and a select group of established and highly respected singers and songwriters shall screen and audition the participants for the singing and songwriting slots. A total of 30 singers and 30 songwriters will be chosen to join this year’s Camp which takes place in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental from Nov 6 to 10.
