The USTSO was established in 1927 by Dr. Manuel Casas who was a faculty member of UST Medicine and Surgery. After several public performances, the group disbanded in 1931 but was re-established in 1961 by Antonio Buenaventura, a National Artist for Music. Later on, besides performing in the city, the group went on a concert tour in neighboring provinces.

At present, the orchestra has 70 student-members and 15 UST faculty and staff. USTSO regularly performs at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and helps with its outreach program.
