Do you like videogame music? Do you like orchestras playing video game music? Can you make it to the Leeds International Festival on the 25th of April?
Brilliant! Because the Leeds International Festival Orchestra will be putting on “Yorkshire’s first ever concert dedicated to the music of videogames” on April 25 as part of the new Leeds International Festival 2017, titled An Evening of Video Game Music.
Conducted by Yorkshire-based musician Ben Crick and featuring arrangements by veteran composer Andrew Skeet, An Evening of Video Game Music will be a celebration of the area’s vibrant gaming scene and myriad contributions to the industry, proudly featuring tracks from Revolution Software’s classic Broken Sword series (Barrington Pheloung), The Chinese Room’s Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture (Jessica Curry), Sumo Digital’s Snake Pass (David Wise) and Playtonic Games’ upcoming Yooka-Laylee (Grant Kirkhope).
Of course, no orchestral performance would be complete without a few tracks from The Elder Scrolls and the Fallout series, so it goes without saying that those tunes will be making an appearance too.
Tickets will cost £22 and can be ordered from the event’s official website.
