A Symphony for Gamers
I just heard about this show on NPR this morning. It sounds like those laser shows back in the day that featured Zeppelin music, only much cooler. It also sounds like a fabulous way to bring young people interested in gaming into the symphonic music fold. The description says that it will feature music and footage from "Final Fantasy, Super Mario Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog, HALO, World of WarCraft, Battlefield 1942, Silent Hill, The Legend of Zelda" and others. I also like the final note: "Parents—Bring those teenagers to the symphony. Kids—Show your parents that those games are really good for you after all!"
