The Advent Echoes (AE) is a mixed youth choral group based in Bagontaas, Valencia City in the province of Bukidnon, southern Philippines. For over 11 years, AE has touched many souls through their Christian choral music within their province and around the island of Mindanao. Today, the group comprises of 40 young and talented students and professionals from neighboring schools and institutions, gathered with the mission to "resound the Everlasting Gospel to all the world."
The AE hopes to go beyond borders hence their plan to take their music to Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand on 23 May 2019 - 2 June 2019. With the series of concerts, the Advent Echoes also hopes to raise awareness and support for their cause, the SULADS Philippines which, for about 50 years, has been actively sending out volunteers to and building literacy centers in remote areas or un-reached communities particularly in Mindanao, the southern Philippines, through their HEAL (health, education, agriculture, and livelihood) program.
To help realize this plan, the AE needs to raise $50,000.00 to help cover airfare, accommodation, food, and other travel expenses for 40 of their participating members.
Your support will mean so much for the Advent Echoes. This once-in-a-lifetime trip will be a first for the AE and its members. Fulfilling this trip means a remarkable spiritual, musical, and cultural experience for the Advent Echoes as well.
