Play - Video Game Symphony / by Granville Street



The VSO is bringing the world of gaming to the Orpheum with an exciting presentation of PLAY! A Video Game Symphony on Monday, December 6th at 8pm.

This concert features the Vancouver Bach Choir and one of game music's most distinguished figures, conductor Andy Brick. This unique and very special presentation pairs the extraordinary orchestral music written for video games with a live orchestra and choir – all backed by clips of the games themselves.

PLAY! A Video Game Symphony enjoys wide recognition as the leading artistic presentation of symphonic game music. This exciting musical experience features award-winning music from a catalogue of blockbuster video game titles, including Halo, Sim City 4, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter: the Chamber of Secrets, Sonic the Hedgehog, World of Warcraft, and more. Under the supervision of Video Director Anthony Pagano and Producer Jeron Moore, stunning graphics on large screens above the orchestra accompany the exciting scores, highlighting memorable moments from the video games themselves. The performance will feature two compositions by the Pacific Northwest’s own Jeremy Soule as well as the World Premiere of Civilization V.
