The Pokémon Company recently announced the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert series, a set of orchestral performances reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses tour. Scheduled for debut on Friday, August 15, 2014, Symphonic Evolutions will first be held at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. Though a set list has not yet been announced, we do know that music from all of the main series titles will be reimagined for the season.
To create an event that doubles as a concert and a movie, The Pokémon Company has reunited creative producers from Symphony of the Goddesses. As an effort to appeal to video gamers and musicians, the orchestra will play various pieces from Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow through Pokémon X and Y while showcasing drawings and videos from the games themselves.
The entire concert series, currently including performances in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and some other unannounced locations, is set to serve as a "thank you" to all fans, past and present. J.C. Smith, director of marketing at The Pokémon Company, has stated that the team is "looking forward to seeings fans of all ages meeting up and enjoying this very special Pokémon orchestral event together."
As someone who attended The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, I know that this is, without a doubt, something to look further into as more details are released. The combined visual and auditory experiences, alongside the interaction with fellow fans, provide a truly magical evening that no gamer could ever forget. Oh, and the massive number of StreetPass hits did not hurt either.
The Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert series will premiere in Washington, D.C. on August 15, 2014, followed by a performance in Pennsylvania on September 19, 2014, with many more stops in between. Ticket details can be found in the source link below.
