THEY serenaded Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno during the fellowship night of the IBP National Convention at the RSM Event Centre of the Philippine Women's College of Davao, I was told. I wasn't there, I was more excited about painting birds.
But on that Friday night while we were motoring off to some far-away place in Baguio, Calinan District, I didn't know what was in store.
My college buddy Pinky Villamor said our long-ago dormmate Bernard Lopez was in town and he's entertaining friends at their place in Calinan. Pinky mentioned another person by the name of G-bert Zerrudo, whom I did not know then, but whom Pinky assured is a good friend of hers.
Off we went with Pinky's high school barkada Toots Tubilan to the meeting place at the Shell gas station at the Ulas Junction. There I saw a big group of men waiting outside four vehicles.
"That's a lot of men," was all I could say, having expected at most, four other people.
It was only after dinner when the identity of the group, aside from them being lawyers and friends of Pinky and one dormmate, was revealed.
Thus, was the private concert with the Chorus Juris.
Composed of Bernard Lopez, Juor Buted, Tim Abejo, Mario Santos, Ariel Magno, and Al Oxales, Chorus Juris, as Juor described the group, "finds its origins in the UP College of Law where in between their studies, these gentlemen managed to leisurely sing their way through law school."
They're all Manila based now, despite their diverse geological backgrounds and are partners of their respective law firms or heads of legal departments of multinational companies. But most of all, they are still singing, and singing very well.
