Comment from Tokyo Symphony Orchestra
Niconico Tokyo Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 5th year.

As a result, we have created content that will be loved by everyone. The distribution started with the idea that “we want people who can’t come to the concert venue due to the coronavirus pandemic to be able to listen to our performances,” but now the number of people who are actually going to the concert hall has increased due to this distribution.
Please look forward to this year’s Niconico Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, which will be presented from our home, Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall. Delivery schedule
Due to various circumstances, the entire program or part of the time shift may not be released.
