TF holds Musikapella orientation

The guidelines were flashed on the screen

Today, the Task Force committee held the Musikapella orientation at the UP School of Economics from 1pm to 4pm. Led by hosts Logistics assistant director Dhiren Karnani and External Relations director Simone Carpio, representatives of the competing ¬†schools were informed about the rules and regulations of the competition. Afterwards, the contest piece, a mash-up of “Awit ng Kabataan” by Rivermaya and “Kabataang Pinoy” by Itchyworms, was discussed by arranger Emmanuel P. de Leon, Jr., who answered questions regarding its tempo, percussions, and the like.

The school representatives were then asked to submit their requirements one-by-one. They also drew ballots to determine their performance order in Musikapella. Snacks provided by Greenwich were served during this process. They were also given kits containing a Musikapella primer with all the contest rules.

Interns undergo marketing boot camp

Interns learn about marketing

Earlier today, the Task Force interns underwent a crash course on Marketing presided by Marketing director Hazel Sumampong, along with her members. They began with a game wherein they were given a tagline and they had to name what company owns it. Next, everyone was asked to create a tagline for his/herself.

When the ice was broken, Hazel proceeded to discuss the art of marketing, including the proper procedures one must abide by. Additionally, she brought up specific situations the interns might run into and how to best deal with them. A simulation followed in order to ensure that they can apply what they were taught. They were also given brochures containing the guidelines so they can review them later on.

Web serials

The Task Force team is a team of pioneers. As such, the Publicity team proudly presents to you the first episode of a weekly web serial, the first of its kind in Ecosoc. Follow Adrian and Sarah as they find modern romance in Metro Manila.

The videos shall be uploaded in the Musikapella V Facebook page and on the Task Force YouTube channel every Wednesday night.
