As part of its 20th anniversary, the Sailor Moon franchise was rebooted in August with the release of Sailor Moon Crystal. Producers adapted the new anime to be more faithful to the original manga than the 1992 cartoon, which was edited for American TV. Usagi Tsukino is given the ability to transform into the guardian Sailor Moon, who must find her fellow soldiers and combat the forces of evil. The show is broadcast exclusively on Hulu with new subtitled shows debuting every first and third Sunday of the month.

David Lopez directed and played the saxophone in the ensemble. He conducts a variety of music groups including the Chamber Woodwind Ensemble, the Concert Band and ‘Don’ Mariachi.
