CALBAYOG CITY – Christ the King College Youth Symphony Orchestra (CKC YSO) received invitation to attend the Philadelphia International Music Festival (PIMF) slated on July 21 to August 1, 2017 at Bryan Mawr College in Bryan Mawr, Pennsylvania.

The CKC YSO composed of a group of sixty (60) musicians and instrumentalists, who after five months of rigorous training, had their debut concert at the Poor Clare Monastery in Calbayog City. The orchestra was formally inaugurated during the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 25, 2007.

In an article about CKC YSO, its media relations coordinator Carl Bordeos informed that the creation of the symphony orchestra was the brainchild of Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma in the year 2005 when the latter was bishop of the Diocese of Calbayog.

Playing musical instruments like the violin, cello, trumpet trombone, tuba, clarinet, flute and oboe, the orchestra performs liturgical songs during masses on Sundays.
