From the organizer:

Our Ghibli Gala Concert is ready. Please spare an evening and come see us play:

The third time we come back to our same old dream: to the simple yet touching musical world of Joe Hisaishi – of pure, peculiar contemplation that become part of the magical Ghibli Studio’s soul.

After 3 years, after many different things that we have done in 2018, why is Concert of Childhood Memory back to Ghibli Studio?

Because these enticing, nostalgic melodies of childhood opened the very first door that led us to the dream of concerts full of people.

Because it is on that very stage that when we play music, we feel such empathy, understanding, and unconditional love.

Because this is our dream, our concern, our motivation, all the disappointment and pain.

After all, Ghibli Studio’s music or those beginnings are always close to our heart and you – those who together create a Concert of Childhood Memory like today.

3 years, 3 programs with music pieces from more than 10 Ghibli movies, 3300 audience, 9000 who follow and support the concert.

Now is the time for us to grow up, to change, to find a new goal beyond the dreams. But before that, we have to have a celebration!

Even if we didn’t discuss beforehand, we all have the same thought in our mind, that, for sure at least one more time, we will together play Ghibli soundtrack music.
