Ateneo Blue Symphony Presents “Lean on Me”, a Benefit Concert for the Philippine Red Cross
Established in 2008 by four passionate, headstrong individuals, Ateneo Blue Symphony experienced tremendous changes as it made its mark on the campus music scene through various performances both inside and outside the university. After its first year of accreditation, this pioneering, student-led orchestra of the Loyola Schools is now executing full-length concerts, collaborating with professional musicians, and putting in powerful yet refined vocals that blend perfectly with the instrumental sound.
Ateneo Blue Symphony is about the culture of music in every form. From music arrangement and production down to performance, Blue Symph’s music is a product of its members. In addition to its roster of performers, the organization counts among its ranks skilled and zealous Operations teams that manages gigs and performances, operates lights and sounds, and handles the technical aspects that make successful concerts happen.
This New Year, Ateneo Blue Symphony stands in solemn solidarity with the survivors of the recent calamities that have struck our countrymen. Showcasing songs of hope from a variety of genres, Ateneo Blue Symphony has vowed to donate its proceeds from its upcoming concert, Lean on Me, to the Philippine National Red Cross as an effort to inspire faith and optimism in those who need it most. From 7:30pm onward on February 25 and 26 at the Henry Lee Irwin Theatre, the Ateneo Blue Symphony, featuring the talented voices of the Ateneo Boys Choir and the Ateneo College Glee Club, will be performing in Lean on Me, a benefit concert for the relief efforts of the Philippine National Red Cross.
