The University of Santo Tomas Singers is under the baton of its founder and conductor Prof. Fidel Gener Calalang Jr.
The UST Singers recently arrived from their very successful 28th International Concert Tour of Europe, where they performed in key cities in Germany and Italy. Highlighting this trip was their monumental win at the 4th Florence International Choir Festival in Florence, Italy where they were proclaimed the Grand Prize Winner, bagging a total of 8 awards, including 4 First Prizes, the Best Male Soloist Award, and 2 special awards for Prof. Calalang.
Consequently, this will also serve as a send-off concert for the 32-member ensemble as they embark on another concert tour of South Korea, where they will be performing in the cities of Changwon, Jinju, Daegu, Busan, and Seoul. The choir will be featured as guest artists at the Busan International Choir Festival and Competition and the Daegu International Choir Festival.
The UST Singers is the premier mixed choir of Asia’s oldest Catholic university, the University of Santo Tomas. It has earned distinction as one of the world’s best choirs, having won 80 top prizes internationally, including the Choir of the World Grand Prize twice (in 1995 and 2010) at the oldest international choir competition, the Llangollen International Music Eistedfodd in Wales, the United Kingdom.
