Many games today feature rich, fully orchestrated soundtracks.

This year, two separate concert tours featuring a full symphony orchestra playing tunes from video games like Halo and Super Mario Bros. will play dates across the United States and worldwide.

The [Play video game symphony]( may make it to Australia. This events puts musicianship front and center and even featuring composer cameos.

I sent an email enquiry at the site asking if there was a chance they’d make it to Australia and received this response:

> Yes – there is a good chance! We are planning to announce more dates in the not-too-distant future and we are considering Australia as well.

If you’re interested, why not leave a message at their website?

The other convert of note is [Video Games Live]( – which focusses more on the games.

Check ’em out.
