CORO SAN BENILDO is the resident choral group of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) in Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1990 by a group of students who wanted to serve in the regular Holy Masses in the College. The group then went on to sing intermission numbers during institutional programs.

After being handled by nine conductors from 1995 – 2008, the group is now under the tutelage of Mr. Lorenzo C. Gealogo. Since 2008, the group has been part of numerous performances, bringing with them an innovative and creative showmanship which has earned them various achievements on and off campus.
