Due to popular demand, the symphony will be not only returning to Tokyo where they originally performed in September 2018, but also performing for the first time in Osaka and Nagoya.

This year, Masamichi Amano will conduct the Osaka Shion Wind Orchestra in Osaka and Nagoya, with singer Yoko Takahashi (A Cruel Angel's Thesis, Soul's Refrain) as special guest performer, and the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra in Tokyo, with trumpeter Eric Miyashiro making a repeat appearance as special guest.
