Right after the culminating of SOM Week came another event MEcOnistas highly look forward to which is the return of Acoustic Night for its second year. MEcOnistas were given the chance to unwind and bask in the live music and the chill ambiance of the night.
Hosted by Ateneo MEcO’s Fund Management department, Acoustic Night paved an avenue for MEcOnistas to showcase their talents through live performances as Ateneo MEcO not only invests in stocks but also in the talents of its members!
This year’s Acoustic Night was held under the cozy and warm lights of Yellow Flame Bar and Grill in Kapitolyo where we got to witness the amazing voices of MEcOnistas as they sing their hearts out to their own rendition of OPM classics such as Aiza Seguerra’s “Pagdating ng Panahon” and Eraserhead’s “Huling El Bimbo.”
Fitz Shioda and Brandon Alonzo kicked off Acoustic Night by serenading the crowd with their original compositions. Spotted in the scene were some of last year’s and this year’s MEcOustics members.
One of the highlights that night included the performance of Andrew Niguidula where the crowd surprisingly and harmoniously sang along to the his rendition of “Pare Ko” and “Narda.” On the other hand, Migs Caparas’ came prepared with a sawi song by Hale entitled “The Day You Said Goodnight.”
Acoustic Night was definitely not just a night of live music. It was a night where people took a break from academics and work and instead focused on something one would regard as the important matter–family and friends. At the end of the day, here in MEcO we are all family.
