Fifteen elementary and secondary schools will compete in the 2013 Tambor Trumpa Martsa Musika competition in this year’s Dinagyang Festival, which has been conferred the prestigious Galing Pook Award.

City Schools Division Education Program Supervisor Gloria S. Auñgon, Tambor Trumpa Martsa Musika Committee Co-Chair, said that the drum lyre and bugle competition is slated on January 25 at the Freedom Grandstand here. Ten elementary schools and five secondary schools are set to participate in the competition.

Of the 10 competing elementary schools, seven are from Iloilo City and three are from the Iloilo province. The seven schools from the city are Iloilo Central Elementary School, Jalandoni Memorial Elementary School, La Paz I Elementary School, Cubay Elementary School, Sambag Elementary Schoo, I.

The competing schools are required to perform two pieces repertoire – an Ilonggo folksong which will be played from start to finish and a medley composition of their own choice.

According to Auñgon, there will be a foot parade of all the participating schools with Iloilo Provincial Capitol as the starting point, going to the Freedom Grandstand where the actual competition will take place at 8 a.m.

She said that the contestants will be judged on drill formation (40 percent) and music (60 percent). For the prizes, the champion will be receiving P25,000, the first runner up will get P20,000 and the second runner up will have P 15,000. The prizes are sponsored by the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation Incorporated. (JCM/LTP/PIA-ILOILO)
