EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENT

USTHS GLEE CLUB JOINS CHORALE COMPETITION

The USTHS Glee Club participated in the elimination round in the annual chorale competition - Voices in Harmony 2008 held last September 20, 2008 at the Philamlife Auditorium.   It is the most prestigious chorale competition for children. The USTHS placed 12th in ranking from amongst 25 participating schools.   Only 10 choirs were chosen to compete for the final round.

 

It was a great experience and exposure for the members of the USTHS Glee Club to participate and represent the school in this activity.   It is the first time for the USTHS Glee Club to compete in a prestigious chorale competition and being ranked 12th is not really bad for a beginner.

 

The Glee Club is looking forward to another competition in February 2009 to be sponsored by the UP Concert Chorus.   In addition to their performance in the USTHS Grand Alumni Homecoming in February 2009 to be held at the Quadricentennial Square, the group might also perform in the annual Christmas Concert organized by the UST Conservatory of Music to be held in December 2008 at the UST Chapel.

 

The UST High School Alumni Association sponsors the professional fee of its Choir Coach as part of its cultural support program.   The alumni association also supports the Tiger Cubs UAAP Juniors Basketball Team, Education through its Scholarship Program and the High School's Community Development Program.
