The Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra recently teamed up with Girls und Panzer for the “Girls und Panzer der Film Cinematic Concert”. They previously held the concert at the Pacifico Yokohama National Convention Hall back in 9th July of last year. Now, they’re performing it in Osaka and Kanagawa, and Bandai Visual and teasing it with a clip of the Tokyo performance:
The orchestra accompanied a screening of the film with classical music as it ran. They also renamed themselves the “Tokyo PhilGuP Orchestra” just for the concert. And if that’s not enough, Chuochuo and Sayaka Sasaki also appeared to perform their respective Garupan theme songs with the orchestra. Chuochuo sang the film’s theme song, “piece of youth,” while Sayaka Sasaki served as a “surprise guest”. She then performed “Grand symphony,” the theme song for the ongoing OVA series Girls und Panzer das Finale.
The two singers will also be accompanying the orchestra for their GranCube Osaka Main Hall performance on 8th April. They will then go back to the Pacifico Yokohama National Convention Hall on 22nd April for the second leg. However, before all that, they are going to Girls und Panzer’s setting, Ibaraki for a sold-out performance. On 18th March, they will be performing at the Oarai Cultural Center in Ibaraki Prefecture.
