Created in 1973 by President Ferdinand Marcos, the NAMCYA Foundation has been hosting rigid, annual musical competitions to promote Philippine music.

In June this year, NAMCYA announced that it would post videos of performances of competition winners as a way of paying tribute the frontliners during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Among the performers featured is Regino Urbano “Doddie”Victorino III, 1999 NAMCYA Cello Category C 2nd Prize Winner.

Also featured is Denise Faith See, who has won several awards including the 2004 Piano Category A1 2nd Prize and Best in Contest Piece; 2009 Piano Category A2 2nd Prize; 2014 Piano Category B Honorable Mention, and 2017 Senior Piano Category Honorable Mention.
