This special series of concerts celebrate the illustrious partnership between acclaimed composer Joe Hisaishi and beloved filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki (Academy Award Winner, Best Animated Feature Film 2002, Spirited Away).
As longstanding friends and collaborators, Hisaishi and Miyazaki have worked together for over thirty years, including nine films from renowned production house Studio Ghibli.
In a new concert production, Joe Hisaishi’s celebrated scores — including those from Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro and the Oscar-winning Spirited Away — are performed with a full orchestra and choir, conducted by Hisaishi himself. The music accompanies montages from Miyazaki’s films, bringing the timeless work of Hisaishi and Miyazaki to vivid new life.
