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.
You wanted it, so you’ve got it! The winning tune from our Sakura Symphony vote is プラチナ [Purachina] “Platinum” (the 3rd Opening).
This “after-school special”-esque tune by Yoko Kanno and performed by Maaya Sakamoto is perhaps the most popular within in the CCS fandom. Thanks to all who watched, shared, and enjoyed our tribute to the music of Cardcaptor Sakura!
Next week, we’ll be announcing the theme to our next performance season: Season III!
After gathering more than 100 votes from fans on social media, we’re happy to announce Cardcaptor Sakura as this season’s big anime orchestral tribute! Join us this winter as our orchestra plays through the magical soundtracks by Takayuki Negishi from all three seasons of the anime – Catch You Catch Me, Sakura’s Theme, プラチナ [Platinum], and many more! We’ll also hold a special CCS concert for our New York fans to watch it live!
And don’t worry fans of InuYasha and Saint Seiya, we’ll also do a tribute to both series in the future!
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.
