As someone who missed the boat on really getting into the Ace Attorney series when it was first released, one thing that has always been abundantly alluring about the franchise has been its music. I can’t tell you how many times Turnabout Sisters has popped into my head completely unprompted, and any time Phoenix Wright made his way into a crossover I was just excited to hear what song(s) followed him.
I know I’m not alone in that sentiment either, as multiple Ace Attorney orchestra albums (and even one jazz album!) have been produced. We are now on the cusp of peak Gyakuten Saiban, though, as it’s been announced the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing an Ace Attorney online orchestra concert next month.
A orchestra concert which you can enjoy the music of "Ace Attorney" and "The Great Ace Attorney" series will be held online on Saturday, April 10th, 2021(JST)!

Normally these events are for Japan only due to their in-person nature, but the concert will be available for those overseas who purchase a ticket. Aiming for a nearly worldwide audience, the concert will be a “best hits” from both the Ace Attorney and Great Ace Attorney titles. Clips from the games will be played alongside the music, and voice actors from the games will also be taking the stage.
Tickets are on sale now, with the price set at $42. The Ace Attorney Orchestra Concert: The Best will be held on April 10th. All times listed on the event website are in Japanese Standard Time, so be aware that this will be live at around 3:00 a.m. PT. That said, ticket purchases do include access to a recorded version for about a week.
