ALERON first came into existence in 2006 as the alumni ensemble of the Ateneo de Manila High School Glee Club under the musical direction of Christopher Ong Arceo. Today, the group is composed of male choristers from different backgrounds.
ALERON, being an all‐male ensemble, is geared towards exploring the male choral soundscape. Through innovative programming and the performance of repertoire across musical styles and genres, the group aims to deliver to its audiences a diverse and unique choral experience.
￼ALERON, translated from Latin as “the winged one,” not only aims to soar towards all‐male ￼musical excellence, but, more importantly, to enjoin its audiences to experience and embrace its unique brand of choral music.

A new instrument has emerged! The performances of ALERON have left the audience in awe and admiration. The broad spectrum of solid male voices of the group will surely provide reason and inspiration for composers to write new and interesting works for the expressive instrument that the group is becoming. We look forward to seeing and hearing more of ALERON and hopefully, for a long, long time.Mark Anthony Carpio
“It is truly rare to find choral groups, especially non-professionals, who are daring enough to tackle and perform contemporary compositions. But what also sets them apart, is the sincere interest and dedication of each singer to learn, understand, and critique these new works and a willingness to collaborate with the creative process of the composer. The Philippines, has found a new treasure in this group.”Dr. Robin Estrada
