Pokemon Symphonic Evolutions Live Concert Series Comes To Philadelphia: Orchestra Prepares You For Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Release
The long running Pokemon series is known for two things: the inability to "catch em all" and for its various themes and scores, which have been richly and delicately crafted over the year. You might not know you're listening to Pokemon, but there's something about the music that just makes you want to put animals into tiny balls.
Princeton Entertainment and Pokemon obviously are aware of this, which is why they have created Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions, a live orchestra concert that showcases some of the series' most memorable pieces. The first concert in Washington, DC was a sold out smash success, so the companies are bringing it to Philadelphia two weeks from now on Friday, September 19.
Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions will take audiences of all ages on a powerful musical retrospective through the most memorable melodies of the popular video game franchise, which has sold more than 260 million video games since its debut in 1996. The performance gives loyal fans and newcomers a chance to experience the franchise through all-new orchestral arrangements and carefully timed visuals inspired by classic and recent Pokémon video games
This concert unites key creatives from the critically acclaimed Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses and Princeton Entertainment, whose productions featuring an orchestra have set highest grossing records across North America.
How successful was the DC show? Well, it received three standing ovations, two encores and even posted a quick follow up concert for the next night in order to satisfy demand. The highlight of the evening? A rendition of the famous theme song 'Gotta Catch Em All' by Laura Intravia.
The concert is taking place at the Mann in Philly on September 19 at 8 p.m. sharp. You can purchase tickets here, it's not sold out... yet.
