Award-Winning Video Game Composer Austin Wintory Returns to Conduct the CSO

On November 15, Austin Wintory will return home to conduct the Colorado Symphony Orchestra in a program devoted to "Comic-Con"-themed music, including his own compositions for the universe of video-games, where he's found his greatest success.

At 30, Wintory is already an accomplished veteran and trailblazing composer. He received the first Grammy nomination for a video-game score (Journey) in a category historically populated with film music by the likes of Hans Zimmer and John Williams -- and he was nominated for a BAFTA for his very first game score, for the acclaimed PlayStation 3 title flOw.
