Barely five months after the establishment by the UP Board of Regents as the official orchestra of the university, the UP Symphony Orchestra has been making waves and living up to their moniker as Orkestra ng Bayan. Under the leadership of the country’s premier conductor and composer, Prof. Josefino Chino Toledo, the UPSO has featured works of classical composers alongside protest songs and contemporary Filipino compositions never tackled by any of our local orchestras.
The UP College of Music and the UP College of Music Alumni Association, Inc., in cooperation with the Office of the University President and the Office of the Chancellor thru the Office for Initiatives in Culture and the Arts, proudly present: “Faith, Hope and Devotion: Lenten Reflections in Music”. After the highly successful launching concert last February, the UP Symphony Orchestra returns to the Abelardo Hall Auditorium stage on Thursday, 11 April 2019 at 7 pm. Also featuring the chorus classes of the UP College of Music, the concert of religious and spiritual pieces will spotlight the works of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Maria Christine Muyco, George Frideric Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach, an apt prelude for the observance of Holy Week for the entire family.
