Kammerchor Manila is a group of friends and professionals with a common passion and talent for music. Although the singers pursue various professions, their common zest for music and service keeps them together to share their God-given talents and to spread God's message of peace and love everywhere they perform. It is a leading choral figure at the Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace (EDSA Shrine) and sings every Sunday during the 12:15 PM Mass.

For the last 14 years, Kammerchor Manila has proven to be one of the most versatile church choirs in the Philippines. The group can render a wide variety of songs, ranging from classical to spiritual & from ethnic to pop. It won the Grand Prize in the prestigious Cantar Villancicos en Casa Manila in 1992, 1993, and 1997. In 2002, it bagged the Grand Prize in the Festival of Carols Choral Competition at the Festival Mall in Alabang, besting some of the more notable choirs in the choral circuit. The group participated in the 4th World Meeting of Families on July 25, 2003 at the Luneta Grandstand. They also had their European Goodwill Tour in 2003 which took them to The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, France, Germany, and Italy. One of their most memorable participations this year was during Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales’ Thanksgiving Mass in Malate last April. Aside from their regular commitment at the Edsa Shrine, they also sing in different social and religious events. Furthermore, they are busy preparing for their 15th Anniversary Concert to be held sometime next year.

Presently, Kammerchor Manila is spearheaded by Musical Director Ronnie Abarquez. He is a graduate of the UST Conservatory of Music, an alumnus of the famed UST Singers, and a member of the multi-awarded Filipino choir – the San Miguel Master Chorale.
