Fangirl Diaries: SB19 and orchestra
As a self-proclaimed hardcore fangirl, I also admit I am not that knowledgeable when it comes to music technicalities. I remember seeing a meme on Facebook about a set of notes that says, “What an inspirational message.” And when I asked my musically-inclined friend, she said that it only shows the word CABBAGE when you read the notes. I got curious but of course, it would take a lot of time to actually digest everything.
I know how to play the guitar though. And that’s the closest I could say to knowing music but apart from that, I am okay with listening to the by-products of it produced by talented musicians such as my muses, SB19.
SB19 creates their own music and they are very well-known for their flawless harmonization. As a fan, this is where I begin with when introducing SB19 to casuals.
Last August 1st, they held their Back In The Zone (BITZ) online concert which I immediately bought the tickets to. It was online but to me, it felt like actually watching a live event. Especially because I haven’t seen SB19 in person yet, but I really felt emotional while watching them. I really appreciate them and their craft so much! Just as I was recovering from BITZ con, months after, they announced another concert held this October!
Perplexed mostly because I worry if I can afford it after just spending for the previous one but also because of the upcoming concert’s theme. Thru their official social media accounts, they announced Forte: A Pop Orchestra Concert.
SB19 and orchestra? I know their songs are great but an orchestra concert with a boy group is not something that one can think of often. Then I realized, it’s SB19. They really named themselves Soundbreak 19 for a reason. Imagining SB19 songs being played with an orchestra, I immediately thought of Shingeki no Kyojin Live reading and orchestra event that I would often watch. It totally gave a different feel to the music but still sounded great nonetheless, immaculate even. Now, I can’t help but imagine What? by SB19 being played with an orchestra. What? on it’s original version is already a masterpiece of musical diversity to begin with. Sadly, the tracklist was already announced and What? is not included but the other songs included still make this concert a worthy one.
And not only that, this concert also features the world renowned groups and musicians such as 4th Impact, Nicole Pugeda, Isaac Iglesias, and SSC Chamber Choir.

Hoping I could gather enough funds for this!
