The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) held its Abilidaray sa SAS event on the 25th of August, 2015 at the open theatre in the Philip Van Engelen building, Talamban Campus. The event was focused mainly on the showcasing of different talents from the school’s students.
The event was hosted by Mr. Bryle Pajaron. Afterwards, PsychSoc president Ms. Darla Maluya led the opening prayer. The first to perform was Shannen Arquio, singing “The Climb” and “Price Tag”. It was then proceeded by a segment where the emcee read random text messages from the audience, which then became a regular segment after each performance. The second performance was a duet by ukulele player Kerxen Ambe and vocalist Leani Maratas.
After the last two singing performances were the dancing performances. The first dance performance was done by Bryan Loquias and Athena Cañada. Afterwards, another vocal performance was done by the duo of Dominic Guyot and Leani Maratas with the song “Almost is Never Enough”, followed by another random text reading segment. The fifth performer in the event, Joshua Cortes, performed an interpretative dance full of grace and spirit which made the crowd go wild upon seeing it.
The last two performances were special. The first was the emcee himself, Bryle Pajaron, singing “A Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “Cheerleader” as he invited the crowd to sing certain lines of the song. The overall final performance of the night was by the defending champions, the SAS cheerdance squad with a spectacular performance. The night ended with the closing remarks given by Ms. Darla Maluya.
