The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses - Master Quest
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is now making it's third tour worldwide! Tickets are available to the public starting today. This time the concert will include music pieces from more recent Zelda titles and is dubbed the Master Quest. I attended the concert back in 2013 at the Mann Center in Philadelphia and it was a great experience. When I was walking by people before the show started, It was fun to hear how excited they were, talking about their favorite Zelda games/music and a fair amount even came to the show sporting Zelda cosplay. It is amazing how far fans will travel just to attend Video Game Concerts like this, especially when you see how young some of these kids are.. it's inspiring to see that they're interested in seeing the symphony live at their age. I also enjoy hearing about the parents or grandparents reaction when they take their kids to these events for the first time, seeing them moved by video game music—something they remember as simple bleeps and bloops--is just a really something to behold.
Some advice, if you're a Nintendo 3DS owner - bring your 3DS! Seriously, this is one place where you will probably see more people walking around with a 3DS out than a smartphone. I remember picking up a ton of street passes and after the show nothing is like checking all of the different people you've tagged, from which part of the world they come from, and then seeing how they've made much more progress than you have in their puzzle piece collection :(

"The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses" concert series is back with a third installment of multimedia symphony to be toured worldwide, titled "Master Quest." This latest edition of the "The Legend of Zelda" symphony will add new music and visuals from the latest games in the series and upcoming The Legend of Zelda games, but will maintain the beloved experience fans have come to expect as it embarks on a world tour. Based on one of the most popular and beloved video game series of all time, the tour features live orchestral performances of theme music from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda franchise that will serve to introduce newcomers to the music and themes of the Zelda games and give longtime fans a chance to celebrate their favorite moments in the franchise.
Audiences can expect to experience awesome new inclusions from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the latest game in the series for Nintendo 3DS, and new music from the recently announced remake of fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. These never-before-performed scores accompanied by game-play imagery will appear for the first time ever in "Master Quest," though fans will still be treated to the show's now-classic repertoire from seasons past.
The name Symphony of the Goddesses refers not only to the concert program but also to the four-movement symphony recounting the classic story-lines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The performance also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Concerts will be performed by full orchestra and choir in world-class venues throughout the world.
Guests will enjoy their favorite moments from the carefully and beautifully timed performance with a gorgeous orchestral score approved by Nintendo sound director and The Legend of Zelda franchise composer Koji Kondo. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, some of whom attend "cosplaying" events as their favorite characters.
