2019 UST Flashmob

It was a short but sweet way to give Thomasians a feel of the Christmas season. While enjoying the classic Santo Tomas ice cream, Thomasians at the Plaza Mayor were treated to the first-ever UST flashmob, which put together the choral groups of the different faculties, colleges, institutes, and schools.Mga Tomasino, Pasko na naman!

The choirs also performed Conservatory of Music Dean Antonio Africa’s “Pasko sa UST.”

Thomasians, meanwhile, were treated to free ice cream the same day.

This was the third flashmob in the University. The first flashmob was done during the Music Week back in 2013, while the second was done during the Christmas concert in 2017.
