Capcom has officially announced in conjunction with Global Coding that the Monster Hunter Orchestra Concert 2021 will occur later this month. This concert was first held in 2009 during the Monster Hunter series’ 5th anniversary. Then, from 2014 onward, the concert became an annual event, with last year’s showing being its first non-audience live performance.
This year’s event will be held similarly, as in it will be viewable online, which offers its own slew of benefits that can not be gained during an in-person viewing experience, such as diverse camera angles to view the spectacles of the performances alongside the vigorous focus from the orchestra participants.
Further, the orchestra will primarily perform songs from the latest, critically acclaimed entry in the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter Rise.
The performance will be done by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, with the conductor being Hirofumi Kurita, an accomplished maestro who has remained a part of the show for 8 consecutive years since 2014. Additionally, Hideki Ishigaki (Shakuhachi), Momoka Enomoto (Biwa), and Izumi Kato, vocal talent providers for Monster Hunter Rise, will be making appearances. Lastly, Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto will be showing up as a guest speaker.
The Monster Hunter Orchestra Concert 2021 will be live-streamed on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, by Global Coding. More information on how to watch the event can be viewed on their official website.
