VIDEO GAMES LIVE!- With the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra-An immersive multimedia event.

Video game music is in the background of life in the lives of many people, and might be the "comfort food" music of the younger generations, given the number of hours videos are played homes in the U.S.

VIDEO GAMES LIVE will be performed in conjunction with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, February 19, 2011, at 7:30 PM at Ovens Auditorium.  I'll be there!

"Video Games Live! is a multimedia concert experience featuring the best music and exclusive synchronized video clips from the most popular games from the beginning of video gaming to the present. Performed with the Charlotte Symphony, the show combines exclusive video footage and music arrangements with synchronized lighting, solo performers, stage show production, special FX, electronic percussionists, and unique interactive segments.

Whether it’s the power and passion of the more recent blockbusters or the excitement of remembering the sentimental classics, it will truly be a special night to remember for the entire family." -Charlotte Symphony Orchestra website
