25 Years later it still inspires
Back in 1986 when the original The Legend of Zelda game was released on the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), game creator Shigeru Miyamoto probably never imagined that some 25 years later his simple story of an elf boy out to save a princess would inspire so many. While Miyamoto’s game has inspired countless sequels and a world wide fanbase, the game also inspired generations of musicians. Koji Kondo, who created the iconic music for the first game and the revised versions is known as an industry legend for video game music, and it was his work that has inspired what could be seen as the ultimate fan-work, with The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses. A full fledged professional symphonic orchestra working in cooperation with Nintendo, is currently touring the United States and performing musical pieces inspired by the adventures of Link in his eternal quest to save Princess Zelda.
The Symphony of the Goddesses currently has tour dates through the end of the year and will be stopping in cities including Houston-TX, San Diego-CA, Orlando-FL, Philadelphia-PA, Vienna-VA, Pittsburgh-PA, San Jose-CA, Toronto-ON, Minneapolis-MN, Boston-MA, Chicago-IL, New York-NY, West Palm Beach-FL, and Miami-FL. Please check their website for exact dates and show times, which are subject to change.
