UST@400 peso bills
IN COMMEMORATION of the upcoming quadricentennial celebration of the University of Santo Tomas in 2011, the pontifical university has asked the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to print a special series of bank notes with the UST logo.
To recall, the BSP had paid tribute to the University of the Philippines in 2008 with the overprint of the iconic UP Oblation on a limited edition of 100-peso notes in honor of the centennial anniversary of the premier state university. Such UP “Oble” bills drew as much frenzy, especially among alumni and collectors, as the misspelled “Arrovo” bills that slipped in circulation in 2005.
Unfortunately for UST, however, the country does not have existing bank notes denominated in P400 to exactly match its anniversary. The next best thing was thus to propose for an overprint of the UST logo on 200-peso banknotes with the year mark 2011. This ensures that Ateneo de Manila University won’t be the first to grace the P200-peso notes with its logo when its celebrates its 200th year in 2059.—Doris C. Dumlao
Bakit kaya hindi na lang yung mga peso bills na may thomasian ang lagyan ng logo ng UST? P20, si Quezon, P50, Osmena, P200 si Macapagal and P1000 kay Abad Santos. 4 bills at 400.
400 Books at 400
A project of the University where 400 book titles will be published by no less than the oldest printing press in the Philippines, the UST Publishing House. A coffee table book which will serve as the 400th title of the project will be published to commemorate UST's 400-year history, containing archival photographs, lithographs, and stories about the University's rich heritage. According to Giovanna Fontanilla, Office for Public Affairs Director, the said coffee table book would be out by 2010, to be followed by the 2011 supplement...

The University of Santo Tomas (UST) ushers in the Yuletide season with the grand staging of the 8th UST Christmas Concert Gala on December 2, 6:30 p.m., at the Santisimo Rosario Parish Chapel.
Heralding this year’s concert gala is a stellar cast of Thomasian musical gems led by 2010 Choir of the World recipient UST Singers, the UST Symphony Orchestra, the UST Brass Ensemble, soprano Rachelle Gerodias, and pianist Raul Sunico, president of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and dean of the UST Conservatory of Music.
Coming off a dramatic victory in the 2010 Llangollen International Music Eistedfodd in North Wales last July, the UST Singers is set to perform four special numbers arranged by its conductor Prof. Fidel Calalang.
Gerodias on the other hand will sing Rejoice Greatly from “The Messiah” and Because of Who You Are shortly after Sunico plays Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite joined by a group of ballerinas in the background.
Another highlight will be UST Symphony Orchestra conductor Prof. Herminigildo Ranera’s O Night Divine Medley (I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, Silent Night, The First Noel, and It Came Upon the Midnight Clear) to be rendered by sopranos Nenen Alfornon, Thea Perez, and Naomi Sison and tenors Eugene delos Santos, Randy Gilongco and Coro Tomasino conductor Prof. Ronan Ferrer.
Other performers include Coro Tomasino (Tres Villacicos and Gising Na conducted by Ferrer), Liturgikon Vocal Ensemble and tenor Lemuel dela Cruz (Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee), and harpists Lourdes Gregorio and Christian Caragayan (Green sleeves – “What Child Is This”)
The UST Brass Ensemble opens the concert with Christmas Fanfare followed by the UST Symphony Orchestra’s Three Kings and Jingle Bells Around the World, with Ranera at the helm.
Pasko sa UST composed by Prof. Antonio Africa and Christmas Greetings reunite all performing choirs on stage with the UST Symphony Orchestra providing the musical accompaniment.
The musical festivity ends with the community singing of Adeste Fideles and Joy to the World.
