The multi-award winning University of Santo Tomas (UST) Singers brought their talents and became the first Filipino choir to perform at the world-renowned Basilica de Sagrada Familia designed by no less than famed architect Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, Spain this August, as shared in a report by GMA News Online.
The UST Singers also opened the 64th edition of the Certamen Internacional de Habaneras y Polifonia in Torrevieja, Spain, where the group bagged top awards back in 2010.
