*THE BEST OF FASHION* : With a unique concept & script by ZARDO A. AUSTRIA, "THE POMP & PAGEANTRY OF PHILIPPINE CARNIVAL QUEENS" is a cultural & artistic presentation showcasing Filipino Beauty & Talent in a breath-taking parade of traditional & contemporary Filipiniana creations inspired from the Glorious Era of the Carnival Queens (circa 1908-1939). Playing immortal Kundiman classics & folk songs, along with adorable Pinoy pop tunes, the UST Symphony Orchestra will be conducted this time by Maestro HERMINIGILDO RANERA, former resident conductor of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.
