Lubbock Symphony Orchestra Plays Video Game Music This Saturday
The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra announced Video Games Live, a concert made up entirely of music from popular video games, will be held this weekend, at The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences.
The performance will include music from games like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Overwatch and other favorites, according to the orchestra.
President and CEO Galen Wixson thinks this is going to be an awesome event for Lubbock. "This concert will be truly exhilarating," said Wixson. "The epic video game music paired with dynamic lighting and video will be an experience you won't want to miss. This will be an unforgettable performance for new and experienced video game lovers, as well as patrons of all ages."
The touring production was created and produced by Tommy Tallarico, a world-renowned video game composer. Video Games Live is an award-winning concert that has been performed over 500 times in 42 different countries, even selling out the Bird's Nest National Olympic Stadium in Beijing.
The concert will celebrate video games and the culture that revolves around them, and it sounds like it's going to be pretty fantastic. We are so lucky to have something that rad come through town.
“Video Games Live is an exciting once-in-a-lifetime show to see in Lubbock,” said Wixson. “Tommy Tallarico has taken this show all around the world, and we are very fortunate to perform alongside him right here in the Hub City.”
I will certainly be there, crossing my fingers to hear my favorite songs. I hope to see you and all of your gamer friends there, too. Make sure you hurry and secure your seat. We only have a couple more days until the production.
The show is on Saturday, March 27th, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $33. You can buy them at the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra box office at (806) 762-1688, or online at LubbockSymphony.org.
