the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra announced a new concert program Heroes: A Video Game Symphony will be taking over Atlanta Symphony Hall on Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 22, 2023. Heroes: A Video Game Symphony features music from fan-favorite video games, accompanied by a choir and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra led by conductor Kevin Zakresky. Tickets to this one-of-a-kind orchestral experience go on sale this Friday, July 14 at 12:00PM at ticketmaster.com. Concert presented by Delta Atlanta Symphony Hall LIVE.
From the creator and producer of the original FINAL FANTASY concerts, The Legend of Zelda: 25thAnniversary concerts, and The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concerts comes an all-new show, Heroes: A Video Game Symphony takes you on a hero’s journey, as set forth by Joseph Campbell’s monomyth; a narrative framework that can be seen in many of the games, films, and books throughout history. Each stage in the monomyth is a chapter in our story, and each game/musical selection was chosen primarily for its suitability for the chapter that it is featured. In this way, our story is the story of a hero, told through the amazing worlds of other heroes, in an unforgettable experience that’s not to be missed.
The program includes music from Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, The Elder Scrolls, God of War, Mass Effect, Final Fantasy, Journey, Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Guild Wars 2, Fallout, Dragon Age, Portal 2, Halo, Bioshock, and more! Kevin Zakresky will be the principal conductor for both shows along with a special appearance from famed composer Inon Zur. Inon Zur is best known for composing music for video games like Dragon Age, Blades: The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and the upcoming Starfield.
