Mr. Giovanni Tomasowa, LSPR Alumni & LSPR Choir Trainer 2006 – 2018, said, “It has been 12 years joining the LSPR Choir as a trainer, participating both in International and national competitions, and also performing at Campus Internal events & other concerts. This time, due to this pandemic, the LSPR Choir Alumni took the initiative to hold a virtual concert, “RISE UP”. Of course there are lots of things that need to be adjusted, the distance and also time constraints, because most of the Alumni are already working and have a family”. Starting from the committee formation meeting, selecting songs and themes, then the training and coordination are all done via online. “With the support of Mrs. Prita Kemal Gani, and our team cohesiveness, the LSPR Choir Alumni will succeed in making this virtual concert. Hopefully the results of the hard work of the Choir Alumni will be fruitful. We present a concert on behalf of our Alma mater, LSPR, to help Covid – 19 fighters in Indonesia. Hopefully it will be entertaining and beneficial”, he said.
