Zelda Symphony

Friday night, was the first Friday in about one year that I didn’t have to work. One of my girlfriends at work switched shifts with me so I could attend a concert with my cousin. Our local philharmonic orchestra was playing a Symphony of the Goddesses and he’s a big lover of the Zelda games. He didn’t want to go alone, and he knows I like the symphony, so he asked me to go with him. I don’t know much about Zelda, but I was excited none the less.

Obviously, the music itself was fantastic, but I don’t know if I will ever attend a concert like this again. There was a large screen above the orchestra that showed gameplay and different scenes from the games as the score was played. I found it incredibly distracting. One of the things I love about going to the symphony is being able to lose yourself in the music. Even if I tried to not focus on the screen, my eyes kept being pulled back to it. I felt it changed the whole experience drastically.

From now on, I guess it will be necessary to check if this feature is going to be used before purchasing any tickets.
