More than 100 musicians, including a full orchestra and choir, will perform music from Final Fantasy on March 10 at Symphony Hall, Boston.
Now in its 25th year, Final Fantasy is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, with upwards of 100 million units sold.
The concert, "Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy" is a multi-media feast for the ears -- and the eyes: it also features a massive video screen highlighting the game's most memorable moments.
Composer Nobuo Uematsu's music -- hailed by Time Magazine for "...imbuing Final Fantasy games with grandeur and depth, much the way John Williams' score helped propel Star Wars into hyperspace" -- is sweeping and richly atmospheric.
The concert will be conducted by Grammy Award-winning artist Arnie Roth, accompanied by Boston's Video Game Orchestra (VGO) and Choir Força, with Final Fantasy composer Masashi Hamauzu in attendance.
