Vienna Opera Ball Orchestra New Year Concert 2015

Yoko Kanno will perform as a guest at the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall in 2015, January 7, for the Vienna Opera Ball Orchestra New Year concert.

This piece of news is from August but was somehow unnoticed.

The Vienna Opera Ball Orchestra recorded the Gochisan drama soundtrack Yoko Kanno wrote.

The Gochisōsan music also Hana wa Saku will be performed.

Yoko Kanno left a message about this event (home made translation, may not be 100% accurate…):

The first time I listened to the Vienna Opera Ball Orchestra, I felt a philosophy about enjoying life. Enjoying is about will. Naturally I had to choose them.
Also, when I asked them to perform the Gochisōsan music, I’m not thinking there were anyone participating there as if it was a job.
I’m looking forward to this new chance to perform with them again.

There’s also a performance in Osaka in January 3rd but Yoko Kanno will not be there!
