Greetings bright sparks! Cosplay is a central theme of any Anime convention and at Hibanacon we love all things cosplay; you always amaze us with the fantastic costumes we see around the venue, and even more when we see the effort you have gone to when you produce costumes for the cosplay ball.
Whether it's a big poufy dress, or a razor-sharp suite, we can always guarantee you'll bring your A-game to the Ball.
In the first two years Hibanacon had recorded music for the cosplay ball, but being our third year we wanted to do something extra special to celebrate, so we've pushed the boat out and are bringing along live musicians to play for you whilst you dance.
Hibanacon is proud to announce Aurelia Strings as your musicians for the 2019 Hibanacon Cospay Ball.
Formed while studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the quartet were the winners of the Trinity Laban John Barbirolli Competition 2015, and were also awarded a place on the Richard Carne Chamber Mentorship Scheme.
Aurelia Strings have performed at venues around the UK including Kensington Palace, the Old Royal Naval College Chapel, Farnham Maltings, opening of Madhurst Arts Festival, Benslow Music Trust, Blenheim Palace and the Wigmore Hall, and have been performing together at weddings and events for over 5 years.
We look forward to welcoming them to the convention!
