• New Minstrels, The CompanY – ‘Happy Together’ for Valentine’s


    Singers of the New Minstrels are back with an all-new repertoire for an evening of song, romance, dance and fun happenings in Happy Together —a musical event with the country’s premiere vocal group The CompanY.

    The leading showband of the ’70s, The New Minstrels is famous for its pop rendition of Filipino standards like “Buhat” and “Balut” and boasts of members who have gone on to successful solo careers.
