“Heroes”: A Video Game Symphony
From the venue:
From composers Nobuo Uematsu, Garry Schyman, Mike Morasky, John Debney, Jessica Curry, Inon Zur, Austin Wintory and more, everything starts with the music, and our award-winning lineup brings you some of the best music that games have to offer. Many of the pieces we feature in our program are from games that have won Best Original Music Composition awards from industry groups such as the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS), The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), and the Game Audio Network Guild (GANG).
We are thrilled to bring the ‘Heroes’ concert series to Atlanta… Fans of these games and the music are everywhere, and the narrative of the Hero is sure to give them a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
For the “Heroes” concert series, a 70-piece orchestra will be joined by a choir to perform new arrangements of a variety of songs from multiple video game franchises. Represented titles will include FINAL FANTASY, Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Portal 2, BioShock, Guild Wars 2, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, Fallout 4, Starfield, Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, Halo, Mass Effect, Dear Esther, Journey, God of War, Dragon Age, Shadow of the Colossus and more. Moreover, the concert story is narrated by BAFTA award winner, Nigel Carrington, from the popular video game “Dear Esther” and a host of other credits.
