I so do love the UPSA...still following UPSA from way back when...Ed Manguiat who I consider as a mentor ....God Bless!
My UPSA experience can be summarized in these words: IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE EASY, BUT IT WILL ALWAYS BE WORTH IT! All my LOVE for UPSA! God bless! <3 <3 <3
I'm waiting for you in Belgium... please, come back my dear friends!
We had the opportunity to be the host of the UPSA familly 2 times, and impatient to see them again. UPSA is not only a great choral, it brings us a lot more, and we are proud to follow "our" children growing up. Many thanks to Kuya Ed and UPSA members
My memories go back to 2005, when I first met UPSA at the "Seghizzi" Choral Award in Gorizia (IT), until the International "Guidoneum" Competition in Arezzo, 2012. Thank you for gifting me of such beautiful performances of my compositions: passion, skill, technique, talented singers. But, above all... smiles, smiles, lots of smiles! To Ed Manguiat and all of you, my friends: God bless you!
UPSA has given me some of my best students in UP diliman during the past few years, among them, jhera may tupas, madeleine denopra and patricia camille llenado. some enduring friendships too, especially in the case of ed manguiat, eugene lejano, germaine reyes, vic cano, dondi ong, zora andam-faustino and patricia fernandez. as UP CAL associate dean, and later as a university administrator under the UP system, i have been fortunate to witness many world-class UPSA performances, some of which had won prizes in many important competitions overseas. my life as an academic in diliman has been culturally enriched by musical journeys with UPSA. maraming salamat UPSA! thanks very much for giving so much pride and honor to UP and the country. break a leg on your succeeding performances :)

Intertwined... Friends forever. These are the words that seal for life the UPSA and Erato Singers. We will never forget our stay in the Philippines ! You were all wonderful and each day our thoughts are with you . We are waiting and we look forward to seeing you in 2016 !
Eventhough we didn't see each other regularly...you are always a family to us....we love you, alam nyo yan ^_^ lalo na mga "oldies" ng UPSA :) God bless you always and keep in touch kahit sa FB lang. Regards to Ka Ed po....
Greetings! I have always admired you throughout the years. Your singing is always clean, crisp, evocative, and fresh. Listening to you reminds me of a child at play in a garden bursting with color and light--beauty and sincerity at the very core of your sound. How Maestro Manguiat evinces a sound that is well-honed is a pedagogical marvel. Your collective artistry and dedication to your music, friendship, and joyous witness to others are indicative of your training and love for each other. May you always be ambassadors of everything good, noble, and true about the Filipino who is always in need of role models of integrity and selflessness.
Dear dear UPSA friends, you had given me so much joy during your one-week visit in Taiwan! You guys are so passionate, and always give out positive energy through your music. Please do come back and visit Taiwan again:D Hope to see more of your works and new songs!
The UPSA family will always be welcome in Blienschwiller ! Hope you are fine, warm regards :)
UPSA never fails to make me sigh each time. So happy to be part of this family xoxo
One of the biggest blessings Seven Archangels Choir has received in our first major concert is to be given the chance to sing with one of the finest choirs in the country, the UP Singing Ambassadors.
We've found new friends with big hearts to share their music to us and to the people in Silang. Truly, God will make a way to multiply the blessings one has shared.
Salamat po ng marami sa inyong kabutihan UPSA! Pagpapala ng Maykapal ay sumainyo.
The upsinging ambassadors are very talented singers
and very nice people to meet, we are always pleased to see and hear them performing
I sought out no less than the UP Singing Ambassadors to sing on our wedding day, and more 20 years later, our eldest daughter is a part of them --- a full circle of being gifted with your music, and giving back in our own little (precious) way! Here's to more and more circles for the joy you give through laboriously beautiful arrangements that light up important events in the country and around the world. We admire your humility despite your accomplishments, Kuya ED MANGUIAT and the UPSA!
