Since its humble beginning in 1992, Kammerchor Manila (KM) has evolved to be the one of the Philippines’ premier chamber choir that it is today by sharing its long tradition of excellent choral music and continued commitment of service to God.

Founded by one of the country’s music pedagogues and visionaries, Prof. Fidel G. Calalang Jr., KM was originally formed as a venue for former members of the world-renowned University of Santo Tomas Action Singers (now known as The UST Singers) to continue their passion for music. Through the years, its membership grew to accommodate everyone from all walks of life who wishes to share their talent and expertise while strengthening their ties with God.

With a vast repertoire of different musical disciplines and genres ranging from madrigals to unconventional contemporary music, from folkloric to modern OPM, from sacred music to pop, KM’s musical artistry and versatility have earned them local and international accolades and recognition bringing continuous pride to the country.

Currently under the musical tutelage of Mr. Anthony Go Villanueva, former assistant conductor and member of the       UST Singers, KM has engaged itself in music festivals, distinguished occasions and goodwill tours in Hong Kong, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Switzerland, Italy, the Vatican, and Czech Republic; and has participated in prestigious local and international choral competitions where they won the following awards:
