Musical Pokémon celebration heads to UK Premiere

Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions, an official live event celebrating the videogame series, will receive its UK and European Premiere on Sunday 20 December at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.

Susie Benchasil Seiter will conduct the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, as large-screen video projections bring to life newly expanded musical themes and visual material directly inspired by the game. The event will feature music composed by Chad Seiter (based on the game themes composed by Junichi Masuda) and animation conceptualised and directed by Jeron Moore. There will also be an opportunity to meet Susie, Chad and Jeron during the after-show poster signing.

The premiere follows sold-out performances across North America. JC Smith, a marketing director at The Pokémon Company International, hailed it as a spectacular showcase of the memorable music that has been a hallmark of the games for nearly 20 years: “The concert is a thank you to fans and an invitation to share your passion for Pokémon by reliving some of your fondest memories at this very special Pokémon orchestral event.” It should be worth attending for the Nintendo 3DS StreetPass hits alone.

The all-new orchestral arrangements and carefully timed visuals will draw their inspiration from six generations of Pokémon videogames, including: Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Black, White, X and Y.

The event runs from 7:30pm to approximately 10pm (including interval) on 20 December 2015, at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo. See the official Apollo website or call 0844 249 4300 for details about tickets.
