You probably know Studio Ghibli and by extension Hayao Miyazaki, but do you know Joe Hisaishi? Initially, the name Joe Hisaishi might not mean much to you, but you will know his compositions. If you’re even slightly a Japanese cinema and anime fan, you’ve heard something he composed. This July, a selection of pieces from these legendary works is coming to Holy Trinity Church. Tickets are available for purchase here.
Hisaishi is the mastermind behind the soundtracks of the vast majority of Hayao Miyazaki’s most notable works. So be prepared for music from Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and many more of Hisaishi and anime’s most iconic pieces of music. You will get your chance to hear these genre defining works live on August 18 & 19 as well as September 30 at the historic Grade I listed church.
The Candlelight shows are taking place at a variety of times across the dates. On August 18, there are shows at 7pm and 9pm – the 7pm has now sold out, so don’t wait around too long if this concert looks like one for you. On August 19, there is a lone show at 9pm, and then on September 30, it’s back to two shows with one at 6pm and one at 8.30pm. With tickets starting at only £18, it’s an absolute steal. This concert will definitely give you something to look forward to at the end of a long work week. Don’t wait too long to make a decision as the shows are fast approaching.
