ES Intercultural Week Video Features Tagalog


For Intercultural Week 2020, ES musicians made a video that features Tagalog!

At the beginning of this video, created by the ES Panther Choir and Panther Orff Ensemble, G5 student Sofie recites the original lyrics to “I Am But a Small Voice.” These lyrics were written by Filipina student Odina Batnag for a UNESCO “Children Helping Children” songwriting contest in the 1980s. The Tagalog lyrics, translated into English, were then set to music by composer Roger Whittaker. 

Panther Choir and Panther Orff Ensemble are taught by Matt Enders, Kelly Mott, and Angela Wong.
