Alyson- a band composed of Ateneo de Manila High School students Miguel Erfe (12J), Pio Ligot (12M), Luis Uy (12E), and Marcus Mababangloob (12B)- won the top prize at the ICA Fair’s annual Battle of the Best bandfest last October 19. In addition to winning the competition, each member of the band also received a brand new cellphone.
