Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses

by on Nov.20, 2017, under Recent Projects and News

ZeldaI’ll be part of the amazing The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses coming to Edmonton and Calgary December 1st & 2nd @ the Jubilee Auditorium! These shows will feature a new piece from the newly released Breath of the Wild, Skyward Sword, and an updated overture.
The two-hour concert comes to life with a 57-piece orchestra, 20-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from recent Zelda games, including A Link Between Worlds, Twilight Princess, Majora’s Mask, while still paying homage to such classics as Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.
