Where: SMX Convention Center, Function Room 4

Ticket Price: 100 Php
UPDATE: Added cosplay guidelines

The Shizen Orchestra is an East Asian music appreciation convention with emphasis on Japanese music.  I’m glad there’s more conventions popping up.  Looks like the recession hasn’t hit the Anime Community yet (unlike our industry tsk tsk).

In any case, more events means more chances for anime/manga fans to celebrate their passion right?  The Shizen Orchestra is admittedly a new name to my schedule.  The events/activities they’ve got lined up sparked my interest for some good old convention hopping.  Care to join me?


Various bands will perform Japanese, Korean, and Chinese music

Japanese fashion designing contest

Participants will design an outfit on paper inspired by Japanese fashion. There will to two categories: Traditional and Contemporary Design. The entries will be submitted before the Music Festival and will be judged during the event itself. Festival guests will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite designs.
