The Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia Choir Student Activity Unit that took part in PESPARAWI XVII consisted of several students from various study programs. They succeeded in presenting works of ecclesiastical music which amazed the judges and the audience.
This success must be balanced with careful preparation and hard work over the past few months as well as good cooperation between choir members so that they can bring satisfactory results.
