Thank you all the donors and supporters who helped bring SERASYMPHONY to Los Angeles! We had an even bigger turnout in the lovely Zipper Concert Hall at The Colburn School! Actress and avid Sailor Moon fan Julie Zhan was our guest moderator and MC. She brought charm, sass, and so much energy to the panel discussion about the creation of SERASYMPHONY and its future – VIP guests couldn’t get enough. And let us tell you about the amazing cosplayers who came dressed in their finest!

We add so much to the program, extending the concert to just over 2 hours of Moonie music! Violin soloist Christina Bouey and composer-pianist Yasuhiko Fukuoka returned for the III. Super concerto movement and surprised audiences with a splendid encore! But perhaps the biggest crowd-pleaser was the appearance by original dub songstress Jennifer Cihi who joined us for our DiC music medley! Even having originated these tunes 20 years ago, Cihi has not lost her touch and it a master of the stage! Fans were in awe of her matured interpretation of classics “Carry On,” “The Power of Love,” and “My Only Love. We will definitely be performing with her again very soon!
