If you wish to follow Hikaru and Wakana you can check their twitter. Keiko doesnt have one yet.
UPDATE 14/3/2019: Keiko, Hikaru, and Yuki Kajiura have published a message via fictionjuction.com.
In it Keiko and Hikaru say thank you and appologise, an say how they’re happy they were able to meet their fans, singing songs that Miss Kajiura wrote for 10 years, and how they decided to stop walking the path of creating a music together as 3 and decided to walk on their own path of music and they hope their fans could support the path that they’ve chosen.
Y.Kajiura states how was actually surprised when she learned the news of Kalafina disbandment, not halted/hiatus. However she noted that they’ve been together for quite a long time, and that still remembers vividly the day she gave the “Kalafina” name to the group, and how it’s also been quite long since they have any group activity, and that she was really sorry towards the Kalafina fans.
