Heroes: A Video Game Symphony is coming to Atlanta Symphony Hall for two performances in September alongside the Georgia Tech Chamber Choir and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Program includes music from Castlevania, FINAL FANTASY, Chrono Cross, The Elder Scrolls, Starfield, Metal Gear Solid, God of War, Journey, Portal 2, Halo, Bioshock, and more! Kevin Zakresky will be the principal conductor for both shows.
Heroes 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, film, 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. 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.
We encourage cosplayers and fans to come out in their favorite video game-themed outfits. Please note: Toy weapons are not permitted at this event (i.e. guns, blasters, swords, etc.).
