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!
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!
Next stop: Atlanta on September 27th! Hope to see you there!!

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon returns to the concert stage this summer! After a sold-out debut performance in New York City, iconiQ The Soundtrack Orchestra brings it’s fan-created Sailor Moon Symphony: SERASYMPHONY to Los Angeles, California on Sunday, July 5 at 8pm.
Originally conceived as a video montage celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary, the fan-made tribute restructures musical themes from the 1992 anime adaptation into a five-movement suite, complete with a double concerto performed by violinist Christina Bouey and composer-pianist Yasuhiko Fukuoka. This extended concert will feature a 30-piece chamber orchestra led by concertmaster Annette Homann, additional musical arrangements, and guest singer Jennifer Cihi – the English singing voice of Sailor Moon – who will join the orchestra for a special medley of tunes written for the North American DiC dub including favorites “My Only Love” and “Carry On.”
A crowdfunding campaign was launched on Feb. 15 and will run until Thursday, April 16. Contributors will receive exclusive perks such as early access to ticket reservations, iconiQuestra merchandise, invitations to a pre-concert panel discussion, and more.
Sailor Moon Symphony: SERASYMPHONY will be held in Zipper Concert Hall inside The Colburn School at 200 S Grand Avenue. Tickets will be available for reservation online starting May 1.
Happy New Year, everyone! We’re so thankful for all the support you’ve given us in our inaugural year. So many plans for the rest of this season … so we’ll let our AD Bobbie talk a bit about “what’s in store for 2015”:
