The Adventist University of the Philippines (AUP) Ambassadors Chorale Arts Society was born in 1957 as a male chorus under the American missionary to the Philippines, Elton Wallace. The group became a mixed chorus under the directorship of Professor Minerva Arit-Penaranda, and has been to this date the official choral group of the Adventist University of the Philippines.
The AUP Ambassadors has been one of the most active choirs in the Philippine music setting, performing at major venues all throughout the Philippines and outside the country including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Thailand and major cities in the US and Canada. The group often performs on PTV 4's Concert at the Park Series, numerous Cultural Center of the Philippines productions and the San Agustin Museum International Music Festivals. Its credits include: Handel's Messiah and John Rutter's Gloria and Magnificat for the San Agustin Museum International Music Festivals, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony for the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) Concert Series and Mozart's Requiem when they were chosen as the choir to represent the Philippines in the internationally simultaneous commemorative performance of the 9-11 New York tragedy, all of which were major collaborations with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Italian conductor Ruggiero Barbieri.
