Coro De San Sebastian is one of the chuch choirs in the basilica. The choir is also a member of Madz et al.

Coro De San Sebastian was established in 1992 by Fr. Herminigildo Ceniza, OAR. The group was composed of a selection of college students in San Sebastian College and was often invited to sing in weddings, special occasions and other celebrations.

The choir regularly sings at the 7:00pm mass at the San Sebastian Basilica.

Under the vocal prowess of the Philippine Madrigal Singers Alumnus Elsie Eranista, she has carefully guided; nurtured the group and she has defined the enviable standard of church choir excellence the group has constantly adhered to.

Now on it’s 4th generation, the group continuous to endure the test of time and performs in outreached programs of the Philippine Madrigal Singers Et Al (MADZ et al), and chorale competitions.

Now under the hands of MADZ member Marivic Llamas, CDSS is now even more better and competitive than ever.
