The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will present PLAY! A Video Game Symphony featuring orchestral music written for video games with a live orchestra and choir – all backed by clips of the games themselves.
This “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, graphics on large screens above the orchestra will accompany the music, 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.
The concert will feature the Vancouver Bach Choir and one of game music’s most distinguished figures, conductor Andy Brick (pictured) who has composed, orchestrated and conducted music for some of the world’s most popular video games.
