Merry Music Lights Show at Tri-Noma9:00 AM
I know Christmas is here when little colourful lights start to go on and off to a merry tune.
And it seems that it is actually here as I was invited to last Saturday night’s launch of Tri-Noma’s Merry Music Lights Show.
The invite said that event would be at the Garden Restaurant area facing North and Mindanao avenues. But being the ninny that I am, I went to the Rooftop Garden instead. I looked around for a stage and didn’t see any until I looked down couple stories below. Evidently, I was in the wrong area of the mall.
I found my way down and managed to grab a seat before the festivities started. The launch was opened by the UP Concert Chorus who dazzled us with their renditions of “Carol of the Bells”, “I say a Little Prayer”, “Somebody to Love” “Listen”, and “Don’t Stop Believin”. After which, we were then charmed by the talented Nikki Gil with a Disney medley. Everyone enjoyed it so much that even the little girl beside me was singing “Part of Your World” as though she was the red-haired Ariel.
Nikki Gil led the countdown to the official start of the music lights show and it was indeed a spectacle. Tri-Noma certainly went all out with this year’s show, having strewn all sorts of lights around and installing a good sound system. Since the Garden Restaurant area is circular, the lights can be seen from all points and the music reverberates. It certainly gave the term surround sound a new meaning.
The Merry Musical Lights show began last Saturday night (November 9) and will play every evening at 7 pm, 8 pm, and 9 pm at the TriNoma Garden Restaurants until January 5, 2014. Each show lasts for seven to eight minutes and features popular Filipino and foreign Christmas music.
