Prolific composer and pianist Joe Hisaishi is the musical mastermind behind the score of numerous films. This symphonic concert celebrates his long and fruitful collaboration with the master of animated cinema, Hayao Miyazaki.
Hisaishi will be conducting the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra at the Orpheum Theater at 8pm April 3rd - 4th 2020 in Vancouver and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at the Meridian Hall at 3pm and 8pm April 18th 2020 in Toronto. As the premiere performance in Canada, Maestro Hisaishi picked his iconic compositions for Canadian audiences; he will conduct a grand orchestral piece, "The East Land Symphony" (2016), for both cities as the core piece, and the symphonic suite Castle in the Sky (2017) for Vancouver and the "Spirited Away Suite" (2018) for Toronto, both beautiful piano parts to be played by the Maestro himself.
