The Filipino Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, Inc. (FILSCAP) partnered with Pioneer, brought the first FILSCAP Campus Caravan Songwriting Workshop to the University of Santo Tomas (UST) last September 27 as part of its nationwide songwriting campaign.

The Workshop was held at the Tan Yan Kee AVR with 125 attendees, composed of Thomasians and students from other universities such as Adamson University and Far Eastern University.

FILSCAP president Rico Blanco said in his opening remarks that the Campus Caravan aims to bring the best local and Filipino songwriters to schools to talk about their experiences, songwriting knowledge, and give tips and techniques.

“[We hope] that maturuan kayo ng a thing or two about songwriting, but more importantly ma-inspire kayo gumawa ng mga kanta,” said Blanco.

Successful songwriter and Spongecola frontman Yael Yuzon was invited as the event speaker for UST. Yuzon delivered an inspirational speech talking about his band’s history and his growth and experiences as a composer.

Both Blanco and Yuzon urged everyone through the talk to keep on writing songs, whatever hindrances they might face.

FILSCAP or the Filipino Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, Inc. is set to bring the Campus Caravan to different colleges and universities around Metro Manila and Davao.
