CONSERVATORY OF Music Dean Raul Sunico was named Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) artistic director and vice president last June 16. He is the first Thomasian to head the 40-year-old artistic institution.

Sunico replaced Nestor Jardin and Rodolfo Del Rosario as artistic director and vice president, who were in charge of the CCP’s production and directorial choices, and overall artistic division, respectively.

Despite the new post, Sunico will continue to head the Conservatory of Music, and teach in the UST Graduate School.

Sunico, a world-renowned pianist, was hailed as one of the Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines for Music in 1986, and was a recipient of KATHA Cultural Heritage Award in 1997. He was awarded the “Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan” for Music in 1998.

Sunico pioneered the traditional UST Christmas concert, which draws artists and VIPs every year. Darenn G. Rodriguez
