The UST Museum offers its deepest sympathies to the family and loved ones of Asst. Prof. Lemuel dela Cruz, Tenor. Sir Lem, as he was fondly called, was a shining star in the country’s musical firmament, who guided and mentored students at the UST Conservatory of Music who went on to make their own great impact as performers.

We recall with joy and gratitude his immense talent, and are grateful for his generosity as a regular performer during the UST Christmas Concerts – a University tradition established by Museum Director Rev. fr. Isidro Abaño, O.P. to benefit the Museum’s conservation efforts and the Conservatory of Music. His voice will ring in our hearts, always.
