Hi Dear Perth Loli's!
As some of you know, my basically fulltime job is as President of PAniC, the organization who run Wai-con (the anime convention in January at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre).
We also run a number of other events throughout the year including the Annual Ball, Race Around Perth, Karaoke, and smaller events like screenings and ice skating.
This year, PAniC has managed to secure the orchestra, Eminence, to send some of their star members to perform a special, exclusive concert for Perth, 23rd January 2010.
Based in Sydney, the Eminence Symphony Orchestra is a leading music production group that specialises in video game and animation soundtracks and recordings.
For the first time ever, seven musicians from the Eminence group will be in Perth as part of "Destiny: Promised Legacy", a concert with music from anime and video games, particularly works from Makoto Shinkai. Also present will be special guest Yasunori Mitsuda, a video game composer, sound programmer and musician, who has composed scores for titles such as Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, and Shadow Hearts.
For more information, visit the Wai-con website (http://www.wai-con.org/wai-con/attractions/destiny/

Or you can visit the Eminence website for more information on the orchestra: http://www.eminenceonline.com/site/index.php
This is the first time something like this has appeared in Perth, so it would be great if you could all make it! Thought it might be something some of you are interested in ^^
