The program includes a selection of some of the most popular and exciting themes from the Final Fantasy franchise, a series famed for its art, music and epic scope. Conducted by Arnie Roth and performed by the CSO, this is the first time the music of Final Fantasy has been performed live in Colorado. And while this music has long been a favorite of fans of the series, you dont have to know which end of a controller is up to enjoy the music. The music is fantastic. From my understanding, it was one of the first full-orchestra with chorus pieces put together for video games, so the music stands alone, on its own, Street says. I think its for people who love music. And for people who love games, its perfect.
Catch it at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 8 at the Boettcher Concert Hall in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, 950 13th Street. Tickets start at $24.25 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster or from the CSO box office, online at www.coloradosymphony.org or by phone at 303-623-7876.
