FASO is an artistic group committed to the enrichment of Filipino culture through orchestral music by developing and promoting artists through programs and activities designed to educate and enrich the community.
FASO’s vision is to be the premiere orchestra that will sustain artistic excellence in the community; and, to be the avenue of cultural growth especially the youth, and help in developing love and pride not only in music but in one’s identity.
