College choir performs at Video Games Live
Video Games Live made its Iowa debut appearance at the Paramount Theatre on Feb. 4. The show featured the musicians of Orchestra Iowa and special guest, Kirkwood Community College Concert Choir.
Video Games Live is a concert featuring music from some of the most popular video games. Of the 19 video games represented, the Kirkwood Concert Choir performed 10. Some of the popular songs included were Metal Gear Solid 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Sonic, Warcraft and Halo Trilogy Suite.
Mechiall Hunt, Liberal Arts, said, “It was exciting and different and a lot of work. I had to learn a different language of music. It was also exciting to work with the orchestra.”
Video Games Live is the dream child of creator Tommy Tallarico. “It is the first and most successful video game touring concert in the world,” Tallarico said. They have performed over 400 shows in 42 countries and on five continents. They were inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest and longest running symphonic concert in the world.
Tallarico said, “Aside from opening the eyes of non-gamers to the industry, my goal is to help usher in a whole new generation of people to appreciate symphonic music.
