Hatsune Miku to Perform at the Music Design Symphonic Orchestra and Electro Carnival!

Although the Hatsune Miku Symphony 2017 has recently finished its runs, Miku’s next appearance in a symphony orchestra may be happening sooner than you thought. That’s because it has been announced that Hatsune Miku will be featured in the Music Design Symphonic Orchestra and Electro Carnival in January 2018!

The event has been planned and directed by the students of Senzoku Gakuen College of Music, and will be held at the school’s Maeda Hall on January 8th next year.

The performance will feature music composed by the students of the Music and Sound Design course. Everything from the music to the lighting and video screenings will all be handled by the students themselves, utilizing all the skills that they have learned from taking the course. There will be various styles of music, such as jazz and rock, being performed by the Senzoku Gakuen New Philharmonic Orchestra along with Keiichi Oku, Minako Seki, and conductors Toshiyuki Watanabe and Kousuke Yamashita.

There will also be a special segment featuring a life-size projection of Hatsune Miku performing alongside the orchestra. The Miku model and animation for the performance were created and motion captured by SHU.

They will also be performing music from anime series “Space Brothers,” scored by Toshiyuki Watanabe himself, at 6:30 PM (JST).
