Ad explains for itself, the wonderful Zelda orchestra is touring again!
Newly coming to:
- Baltimore; Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall; July 27
- Grand Rapids Mich.; DeVos Performance Hall; Oct. 19
In cities where the tour will be returning, audiences can expect to experience breathtaking new material exploring additional chapters from The Legend of Zelda franchise, along with traditional performances of the show’s now-classic repertoire from last season.
The name "Symphony of the Goddesses" refers not only to the concert program but also to the four-movement symphony recounting the classic storylines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The performance also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from other games in the series including The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, new suites chronicling the handheld adventures from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, as well as a special arrangement from the latest entry, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Eímear Noone will conduct the full orchestra with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter, and the evening will be hosted by concert producer and lead creative Jeron Moore.
Guests will relish their favorite moments from the now-27-year-old series, carefully and beautifully timed with a gorgeous orchestral score approved by Nintendo sound director and Zelda franchise composer Koji Kondo. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, many of whom attend "cosplaying" as their favorite characters.
"The demand for Zelda is amazing, and this special concert will deliver an unforgettable experience for fans " notes Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour. "These performances transcend culture and geography and unite people through a common love for this venerable and legendary series."
