Excellence Beyond Medicine

Every year, the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Student Network - National Capital Region (APMCSN-NCR) hosts a choral and dance competition, entitled MedRhythmia and MedGroove, respectively, between the different medical schools in the region. This year’s competition, held at the Aliw Theater, had the theme “Juan Goes Broadway,” and found the different schools’ representatives dancing and singing show stopping pieces.

This year was the second time the St. Luke’s College of Medicine (SLCM) Chorale joined MedRhythmia, coming from a second runner up at last year’s competition. This year, performing a moving and chilling rendition of “Deliver Us” from the film Prince of Egypt, and delivering a emotional rendition of the contest piece, “All I Ask of You” from the Phantom of the Opera, the SLCM Chorale was declared champion, besting seven other medical schools. On top of their first place finish, they also bagged all the special awards for the competition. The chorale was deemed to have the “Best Contest Piece Interpretation,” and “Deliver Us” was awarded the “Best Choice Piece.” The last special award was given to the Chorale head, Derrick Fuentes, as the “Best Conductor.”

This year was also the first time that the St. Luke’s Dance Company (SLDC) participated in MedGroove. Since this year’s theme was “Juan Goes Broadway,” SLDC chose “Dreamgirls”, originally a Broadway musical then later adapted into a 2006 film, as inspiration for their performance and the final product was “Dreamgirls: LuzViMinda”, a Broadway piece showing the Filipino people as united amidst diversity. The routine, choreographed by Raul Raquitico, featured different styles of dance and music from various genres that flowed easily into each other, reflecting their theme of unity in diversity. At the end of the evening, SLDC was named first runner-up, and was also champion to all three special awards for MedGroove, namely the “Most Original” award, for being “Best in Costume,”and the “People's Choice Award,” with the first two awards shared with the Ateneo Med Dance Group, Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health’s own dance company. #
