Choir Report: Prime Note Ensemble prepares for 2012 World Choir Games

The story and musical journey of Prime Note Ensemble unfolded not in the normal confines of lofty music and concert halls, nor in the learned environment of great historical conservatories and schools, but in the least likely place one would have never expected – the dry and arid desert red sands of Saudi Arabia.It all began in 2001 when Medard Obida boldly pushed the idea of putting together a group of overseas foreign workers (OFW) from the Philippines working in Saudi Arabia into a men’s choir with no musical background.

The group constantly improved and they started to participate in several choir competitions. This year, the choir’s journey continues on as the group prepares yet for another musical milestone — the 2012 WORLD CHOIR GAMES CINCINNATI USA in July.
