Unpad Choir’s Comparative Studies: A Place to Share Knowledge, Story, and Hope
In the beginning of 2018, Unpad Choir got the chance to have two comparative studies with two competent student choirs in Indonesia, Telkom University Choir (Tel-U Choir) and Brawijaya University Student Choir (BUSC). The comparative study with Tel-U Choir was held in Ruang Serba Guna (RSG), Unpad Iwa Koesoemasoemantri, Dipatiukur Bandung (27/1). And for the comparative study with BUSC in Bale Santika, Unpad Jatinangor (3/2).
These comparative studies were a place for both choirs to acquire knowledge from each other. The information that was shared in these comparative studies is not only about concert and program committees but also about the story and struggle behind each choir. Each member of both choirs also has their chance to share their story and experience as a choir member.
Aldo Randy Ginting, the coach of Tel-U Choir said that he was really happy and proud with the warm welcome that Unpad Choir gave. “I want to say thank you very much for Unpad Choir’s board. We were really happy because Unpad Choir welcomed us like a family will. I felt like I was finally home.” told the Unpad Choir’s member of class 2008.
The fact that Unpad Choir established since 40 years ago made them as one of the oldest student choir in Indonesia. With a lot of journey and hardships they’ve been through, made Unpad Choir as one of the role model for various student choirs in Indonesia. These were told by the Director of BUSC, Rahmadian Pradana (3/2). Rahmadian also told us that BUSC really want to learn from Unpad Choir in terms of international competition because of the achievements that Unpad Choir got in Spittal an Der Drau, Austria last year.
”Unpad Choir really inspire us with their Indonesia Kirana. For me, Indonesia Kirana is the best choir brands in Indonesia. Keep moving forward, we’re waiting for you in Malang” Rahmadian, the Director of BUSC stated.
