The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert impressions

On July 25, 2012 Pixelitis editor Patrick Kulikowski had the stupendous pleasure of having attended the orchestral extravaganza of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, held at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia.

"The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is a joint effort by Jason Michael Paul Productions and Nintendo to bring the series’ music in a full, live orchestral form to the world. Prior to this, there had never been a long series of live orchestra events dedicated solely to Zelda music, so you could imagine the excitement me and my fellow Zelda fans had going into this one.

The performance was done by the Pittsburgh Symphony in tandem with the Philadelphia Singers, and was led by Eímear Noone, a familiar name for many memorable Zelda concerts.

I was seated in left orchestra, where I had a nice view of the entire stage. As soon as the conductor set foot on stage, the audience roared with applause and we were on our way to revisit the magic of Hyrule."

Symphony of the Goddesses
The 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda concert, "Symphony of the Goddesses" was a truly spectacular event. The arrangements of these tried and true tunes were beyond my wildest expectations. Never have the songs felt more alive or filled with more power. Aside from the glorious arrangements, we had a stellar performance from an orchestra and choir that had razor-sharp technical skill.

I teared up and nearly wept multiple times... not just from the prowess of the symphony or the fluid movements from the conductor, but also from the concentrated doses of re-awakened memories and nostalgia. Truly an incredible performance and concert. Well worth it. I'd see it again just to hear such bliss.
