For the video game enthusiast now grown into a sophisticated adult, or for the gal dating the guy unable to pry his thumbs from the gaming console, this night of classical music brings together the geeky and the refined. Presented by Pacific Symphony, Video Games Live is music from the most popular games: Mario Bros., Halo, Zelda, Skyrim, World of Warcraft and more, conducted by award-winning music director Emmanuel Fratianni. In addition to the grand orchestral concert, the show features special video footage, electronic percussionists, solo performers, live action, and a lighting spectacular. Prior to the concert, audiences can partake in the entertainment with a costume contest, Guitar Hero competition and prize giveaways.
