The man’amko proved that they are still spry with their annual Christmas concert held at the Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center last Tuesday.
The hourlong event treated the audience to diverse performances ranging from singing with the Voices of Angels to a theatrical skit. There was also a raffle for the concert-goers.
An audience member, Sophia Quintos, said, “I like the skit the man’amko did at the end of the concert, it was really funny.”
Tickets were sold at $5 each.
Walter Manglona, director of the Office on Aging, said, “Proceeds for the event will benefit the Office on Aging, but the man’amko would much prefer to have people give presents rather than the money. So for those who, for some reason, can’t afford the ticket and we have some extra space left, we’ll squeeze you in.”
Rep. BJ Attao (Ind-Saipan) said, “It’s always entertaining to come out and watch the [man’amko] every year.”
Attao was present throughout the entire concert, despite watching the man’amko’s performance at the Legislature the day before, making this his third year in a row.
“We actually get to catch a glimpse of them up at the Legislature every year so we’re treated with a sneak peek of their performance but it’s nothing like the actual concert,” Attao said.
Manglona said, “I actually wanted to step back a bit just to have the man’amko have something all to themselves. That’s why everything is a single performance and all efforts in this concert is thanks to them.”
