Cebu Symphony Orchestra

CEBU CLASSIC ORCHESTRA was quietly formed in March 2011 by a group of Cebu-based classical musicians. Most of them were formerly members of the Cebu Youth Symphony Orchestra (CYSO) and Peace Philharmonic Philippines (PPP).  While the others are second generation musicians trained by original members of the CYSO and PPP. It envisions that Cebu will eventually find its place on the world’s cultural map. Through its performances in different venues and social events in Cebu community, it hopes to revive the popularity and appreciation for classical music.

A message from the UUU “A Wish”

Music has a magical power to change life. We strongly believe that introduction of music education for every child is essential to build a sound society. Experience of orchestral ensemble can bring a sense of cooperation, self-esteem and aesthetic satisfaction to any children regardless of their socio/economic background, sex, age, or any else. Furthermore, kids even learn the importance of compliance and teamwork.
Hope our concerts would be the beginning part of the prosperous history of CEBU as a CITY OF ARTs which offers plenty of opportunities for the people to get engaged in art-activity. May the good relationship between Japanese and Filipino musicians last for good…
