Led by the sweeping baton of conductor Andy Brick, the Grand Rapids Symphony pays homage to computerized compositions with Play! A Video Game Symphony. Recognizable suites from beloved games reverberate off the spruce canopy of DeVos Performance Hall, coming to life under virtuosic strings, brass, and woodwinds backed by thunderous percussion. The whimsical blips of Super Mario Bros. transform into full-bodied bursts of euphony, and the musicians further elevate the cinematic scope of the scores from World of Warcraft and The Legend of Zelda. Giant video screens display colorful graphics and game footage during the show, bringing to mind childhood afternoons on the couch and ill-fated campaigns for mayor of SimCity.
