As previously reposted on WOW Japan, “ROSELIA” keyboardist Satomi Akesaka will be graduating from the band due to health issues. She was reported to have suffered from sudden hearing loss, at least twice since March of this year.
As such, “ROSELIA” is now holding auditions to replace their graduating member. Applicants must be between ages 13 to 20, have piano and keyboard experience, and may be either professional or amateur. Applicants who already belong to a talent agency or artiste management group are welcome to join.
The deadline for applications is on 13th August 2018, and succesful applicants will receive a call-back by 20th August 2018. Application forms as well as more detailed instructions on the auditions are available on the official BanG Dream! website.
In related news, a special concert “BanG Dream! 5th☆LIVE” was also recently held at Makuhari Messe to officially welcome seiyuu Yuki Nakashima, who will be replacing Yurika Endou in the role of “Lisa Imai”. Endou will be retiring from the entertainment industry due to health-related reasons.
