Ace Of Strings was founded by Benjie Bautista in 1985 and has been providing session musicians for events ranging from weddings and anniversaries to corporate events and concerts. Composed of distinguished professional session musicians and our country’s most outstanding prodigies, Ace Of Strings aims to deliver the best quality music for clients that demand nothing less than extraordinary.


Our mission is to refine the quality of Filipino session musicianship and engage world-class standards and respect for our craftsmanship.


Antonio Benigno “Benjie” Bautista, renown to everyone in the music industry, has led a lot of musical ensembles – from string ensembles to symphony orchestras. Listed here are some of his achievements. In 1983, the first group he organized was the Philippine String Ensemble which kickstarted his reputable standards. Soon after, he established the Philippine Chamber Orchestra, a classical orchestra that most notably played regularly at the "Concert at the Park" in Luneta. As demand for pop music increased, Benjie put together the Philippine Pops Orchestra, which played for the weddings of Congressman Dudot Jaworski, Mikee Cojuanco, Beaver Lopez, Jackie Estrada, etc. Then, over a decade ago, he was asked to organize the Philippine Centennial Orchestra to play at the "Expo Pilipino", now Clark Expo, and the 120-member Millenium Orchestra to perform at the Luneta Grandstand for a grand "Millennium Presentation". A few years ago, he was also appointed as concert master of the acclaimed San Miguel Philharmonic Orchestra. On top of all these achievements, Benjie has been leading Ace Of Strings for over 35 years and he strives to maintain the only quality of music that he's familiar with - the best.


Ace Of Strings has been serenading event-goers for over 35 years - and here are some of our most notable performances. On TV, we've provided music for the Silver Anniversary Presentation of GMA7's Eat Bulaga and, just recently, the launching of their new studio. We appeared in Pinoy Big Brother: The Reunion. In 2006, Ace Of Strings started performing for Sharon Cuneta's Mega Valentine Concert at the Araneta Coliseum - and we still continue to maintain the same relationship. Abroad, the 25th Anniversary of First Pacifc called for artists such as Martin Nievera, Sharon Cuneta, Lani Misalucha, Kuh Ledesma, Christian Bautista, and, of course, Ace Of Strings. Back in the country, Ace Of Strings played for the Sen. Pangilinan – Sharon Cuneta, Ogie Alcasid - Eimeren,Vince Hizon - Bermudez and the likes. For birthdays, we've played for the sophisticated debuts of Carmina Villaroel, Heart Evangelista, and Camille Prats to name a few. Today, if you want to hear us perform, we often play for shows on the country's big television networks like ABS-CBN's "ASAP". The opportunity to work with the best has always been our most treasured privilege.

Yes, we have been doing this for over 35 years - and we look forward to the next 70!
