The Legend of Zelda: 25th Anniversary Symphony Details

It is safe to say that the music in many Nintendo games are easily recognisable, and this is certainly true when it comes to The Legend of Zelda series. Successful games composer Koji Kondo can happily credit The Legend of Zelda series as some of his finest works. 2011 marks the 25th Anniversary of Zelda, and announcements have slowly been occurring throughout the year to mark this. Last month, Ocarina of Time got a reboot on the Nintendo 3DS, whilst news of Skyward Sword has currently been expanded upon via this week’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Now the latest news for Zelda fans concerns more anniversary celebrations. A series of Zelda Symphony concerts have been confirmed around the world, with the first occurring on the 21st October 2011 in Los Angeles. Tickets start at $35. Tour dates for the subsequent concerts will be announced around this, and will begin at the start of 2012.

The performances will feature a 70-strong orchestra and a full choir, and allow fans of the highly popular Zelda series to experience a host of familiar songs from the games performed live. The setlist will be hand-picked by Zelda composer Koji Kondo himself. The concerts are produced by John Michael Paul Productions, who are responsible for Play! A Video Game Symphony, which toured the world performing music from a variety of video games.

The official trailer and more information can be found at the Zelda Symphony website.
