Cinema Wind Orchestra is coming soon! Announcement of scheduled songs! A project to support children’s performing arts appreciation experience has been decided!
One of Japan’s three major professional wind orchestras, *Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra*, will be holding a concert with the theme of “cinema music”, *“Cinema Wind Orchestra”*
will be held on Saturday, May 18th at the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Main Hall.

Until now, the orchestra has held various concerts with themes such as “Dragon Quest”, “Evangelion”, and “John Williams”, as well as games and anime works, as well as single composers, but this time the theme was “film music.” It’s a great time to enjoy an overwhelming performance of a famous song that reminds you of a famous scene from a movie with just one note.

Disney classics such as “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast” will be performed. As a program unique to the orchestra, the lineup mainly includes songs from the series “New Sounds in Brass” that started in 1972, arranging domestic and international rock, pop, and jazz music for wind orchestra. The many famous arrangements will thrill not only current students who belong to the brass band club, but also those with experience.

The conductor will be * Kazuki Wada *, and the host will be former Nippon Television announcer * Shinobu Matsumoto *.
Please experience the finest live music performed by the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra!
