The Tokyo Symphony Orchestra (TSO) opens its 2017/18 season on April 22 at Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall, but the performance will be lacking one crucial element during the opening piece: the orchestra.

Instead, the 48 members of the Tokyo Symphony Chorus (TSC) will take the stage in celebration of its 30th anniversary. In collaboration with cellist Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi and a few precussionists, the upcoming concert will feature contemporary Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina’s “The Canticle of the Sun,” which will be performed for the first time in Japan.
