Berklee Presents Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy at Boston’s Symphony Hall April 24
(Published: April 22, 2015)

The Signature Music Series at Berklee continues as Grammy Award-winning conductor Arnie Roth leads the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra in a captivating performance of Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy at Boston's celebrated Symphony Hall.

The multimedia concert will showcase music from throughout the series, including beloved classics, previews from the latest releases, and a stunning high definition video presentation from game developers Square Enix. The program features the music of celebrated video game composer Nobuo Uematsu, with such highlights as Character Theme Medley (Final Fantasy VI), Roses of May (Final Fantasy IX), Zanarkand (Final Fantasy X), Jenova Complete (Final Fantasy VII), and more.

Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy takes place on Friday, April 24 at Symphony Hall, located at 301 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston. Tickets are $92.50, $77, $60.50, and $43.50, reserved seating. Purchase tickets at bso.org or by calling 888-266-1200. The venue is wheelchair accessible.

Arnie Roth is a Grammy-winning artist who has worked with Il Divo, Diana Ross, Jewel, The Irish Tenors, and Charlotte Church, and has conducted orchestras all over the world, including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Czech National Chamber Orchestra, and the Tokyo Philharmonic, to name just a few. He is well known in the video game world for his work with celebrated video game composer Nobuo Uematsu, and Final Fantasy developer Square Enix. He was the winner of the Best Score Award at the 2003 DVD Premier Awards and was nominated for an Emmy in 2007. For more information, visit awrmusic.com.

Since its debut in 2008, the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra (BCSO) has set out on a course to distinguish itself from other Boston-area orchestras. The ensemble has nearly 100 members and is the first full symphonic group ever assembled at Berklee. Possessing a distinct Berklee twist, the group specializes in programming contemporary works-particularly those by living composers-but juxtaposes them with pieces from the traditional orchestral repertoire. "We want to explore different repertoires and types of music-symphonic material that does not necessarily belong to the traditional symphonic repertoire. BCSO is firmly connected to the roots of the symphonic repertoire. We're interested in adding to the continuum of great orchestral music," says assistant professor Francisco Noya, the BCSO's music director and conductor.
