[JACKtivity of the Week] 25th Anniversary Symphony Featuring THE LEGEND OF ZELDA In Hollywood
The Hero of Time has returned… to Hollywood!
If you’re a Nintendo fan, you’ve probably spent a couple hours playing as a little man in a green cap.
Whether you rocked the Dark World it on the Super Nintendo or slashed your way through Hyrule on a Wii, The Legend of Zelda remains an iconic piece of video game history. Everything about this franchise is outstanding: the story, the characters, the gameplay, the fictional world…. it’s all top-notch.
But perhaps the most iconic aspect of The Legend of Zelda is its music.
On October 21, a 70-piece orchestra will perform new arrangements of a variety of songs from the series’ 25-year history at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.
From the official website…
“Nintendo is celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda™ video game series in style. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert will include songs from the iconic series hand-picked by Nintendo composer Koji Kondo and his team.
