‘ANiMATO’ video series returns April 24

Our most popular series ANiMATO reaches its fourth anniversary this April! We’re marking this milestone with orchestral tribute videos featuring our highest-viewed tributes from 2014-2017 and 3 pieces selected by our viewers!

Each piece will be an expansion and re-orchestration of our original version with a large ensemble. Are you excited to what’s to come? Mention us with #iTSO and #ANiMATO2018!

The first video premieres Tuesday, April 24 on our Youtube page with subsequent videos uploaded on the last Tuesday of every month through the end of the year.

VIDEO RELEASE: “Clear” from Cardcaptor Sakura

One of our favorites – Cardcaptor Sakura – is returning to the small screen with a brand-new arc! We fell in love with the opening theme “Clear” by Maaya Sakamoto; watch our version inspired by the official trailer

Also, due to the growing love of our original Sakura Symphony tribute, we’ll be premiering a live concert in New York City Fall of 2018! Details to come in the Spring.

Cardcaptor Sakura ~ Clear Card Arc will be simulcast by Funimation starting January 6, 2018.

VIDEO RELEASE: “Celestial Born” Patreon request

As the Sailor Moon musical end, one of our Patreon supporters requested a special arrangement of the stellar “Celestial Born” Outer Guardians’ song from the musical Le Mouvement Final. Enjoy this quintet version and perhaps we’ll record a full SeraMyu tribute album!

VIDEO RELEASE: “Once Upon A December”

One of the most successful non-Disney animated films turns 20 today! Fox Animation’s Anastasia – notable for its all-star cast, award-winning Lynn Ahrens-Stephen Flaherty musical theatre writing team, and Don Bluth’s legendary strokes – is a nostalgic fairytale look at the tragic story of Anastasia. We grew up playing the popular “Once Upon A December” in youth orchestra, and we’re so happy to present our interpretation for string sextet.
