Their first official performance will be held on Sunday, October 6th (5 PM) at The Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford, Florida. “Dancing Mad: A Final Fantasy VI Tribute,” pays homage to the legendary RPG soundtrack composed by maestro Nobuo Uematsu. Rebecca Tripp, the Tribute’s arranger, is providing stunning visuals which will be projected from a massive screen above the ensemble. Piano virtuosa Kara Comparetto and symphonic metal guitarist Chris Valenta will be the featured soloists on a program consisting entirely of world premieres.
Founder and conductor Daniel Cortes explains, “We forge intense emotional connections with video game soundtracks. You become the characters and their musical themes become the soundtrack to your personal struggles and celebrations.” Speaking of celebrations: The audience is invited to party with the orchestra afterward. Location to be disclosed at the concert.
The first half of the program features original compositions and arrangements by game and film composers Angelo Goderre, Allan Brown, Jason Kutchma, Nathan Felix, Sam Dillard, and an incredibly promising young talent by the name of Ludwig van Beethoven.
