Abstract

The study describes the manner in which participation in SPU Manila's Glee Club is instrumental in the lives of its members. Through a focus group discussion (FGD) involving eight members, the results revealed that the experiences of the students affect the physical, financial, political, and social dimensions of their lives, enabling them to achieve personal goals related to exposure, receive assistance, and develop self-confidence. These benefits result in the satisfaction of most of the members and a desire to continue with the group, provided participation does not get in the way of academic priorities. The study also revealed a desire among students to assert instrumentality in the chorale group as they sought more regular evaluations and frustrations over not being heard by their moderator/s.
