The UST Symphony Orchestra and the USTSO Alumni join forces in Reunion happening on March 15, 2015, 6:00 pm at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater). This concert, conducted by Herminigildo Ranera, kicks off the USTSO’s 2015 performance season.

The USTSO was established in 1927 by Dr. Manuel Casas who was a faculty member of UST Medicine and Surgery. After several public performances, the group disbanded in 1931 but was re-established in 1961 by Antonio Buenaventura, a National Artist for Music. Later on, besides performing in the city, the group went on a concert tour in neighboring provinces.

At present, the orchestra has 70 student-members and 15 UST faculty and staff. USTSO regularly performs at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and helps with its outreach program.
