Calista gears up for ‘Vax to Normal’ concert

Following their successful media launch last March 8, the country’s most promising girl group Calista continues to make waves. Their latest performance was at the country’s first Pinoy Pop (P-Pop) Convention last April 9 to 10, 2022 at the New Frontier Theatre, Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City.

Calista continues to work hard, train, and prepare for their upcoming concert, “Vax to Normal,” which will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on April 26, 2022, 6 p.m. Their hectic schedule has kept the girls busy, but they remain energetic and joyful, always keeping the support of their fans and family in mind.

“They train for 12 hours a day, from 8 AM to 8 PM—workshops, voice lessons, dance training, rehearsals. Calista is training double time because of the concert,” Escalante shares. The girl group will be performing with special guests Yeng Constantino, Elmo Magalona, AC Bonifacio, Darren, Andrea Brillantes, and Ken San Jose.

During their last performance at the P-Pop Convention, Calista performed their latest single, “Race Car,” and Little Mix’s “Woman Like Me.” With their high energy, dynamic choreography and vocals, the group surprised the crowd and excited fans. Many who watched the event live and saw recorded videos on YouTube praised their major improvement.

According to Calista’s Manager Tyronne Escalante of Tyronne Escalante Artist Management (TEAM), the progress of the girls could be credited to their hard work and dedication. “Olive, Anne, Laize, Dain, Denize, and Elle poured their heart into their performance. The girls also appreciate the concern and constructive criticism from P-pop fans. They continue to remain humble and work hard to earn the admiration of the P-pop industry and fans,” he shared.

Escalante added that the management, with the producer Merlion Events Production Inc., made significant changes in the coaching line-up that also contributed to the girl’s growth, “We are now partnering with Douglas Nierras of Power Dance to fast track the improvement of their dance performance.”

Nierras is one of the best choreographers in the Philippines, a dance legend in his own right who has over 40 years of experience in the industry. He is an award-winning choreographer whose experience with various dance styles has earned him widespread recognition. TEAM also decided to add another choreographer to form Calista’s powerhouse coaching team, Vimi Rivera. Rivera is a World of Dance Manila Director, owner of Groove Central Dance Studio, head choreographer of Legit Status, and ABS-CBN choreographer.

Escalante further said that Calista is still trained by vocal instructor Imelda Marie “Marnie” Jereza. Apart from honing their talent, TEAM and Merlion also expressed their gratitude to the rest of Calista’s team that continue to help the girl group shine, including celebrity stylist Myrrh Lao To.
