First I have to say that I may not be the most intune and knowledgeable Zelda fan in the world, but the music is embedded in my gaming DNA, so with that said what was it like to experience the music not only live but with the San Diego Symphony playing it and getting to meet the conductor and the producer after the show…
Well let’s start with the concert experience, when we arrived we all treated to a costume contest that spanned from traditional Link and Zelda to baby Link and a Shadow Beast, and even Epic Link, but in the end the winner was the Messenger.
We also ran into the San Diego Street Pass team which is dedicated to having meet ups for 3DS users by holding events at GameStop stores and such, if you live in the San Diego area check out their site and join up with the rest of us and add some more Mii’s to your plaza.
Once the concert started you could feel the high energy in the crowd, it was electrifying to be among people who appreciate the same music as you for different reasons, some have been enjoying it since the original game like I have and others have only started listening to it as recent as Twilight Princess.
The concert was simply amazing, the music combined with scenes from the different games and in some cases they used scenes from the games to bring the history of Hyrule to life before our very eyes.
This is an experience to behold if you have the chance to see this in your city you need to make the effort, below you can find a video interview with the Producer, the Conductor, and the Music Arranger for the concert. You can also find more information about the tour on their site.
