Game Music Festival:
If you live anywhere near Wroclaw, Poland, there will be a music festival on the 26th and 27th of October featuring music from Diablo, World of Warcraft, and StarCraft! If you would like more information, visit gmfest.com, or read the press release below!
"The Symphony of Heroes concert will open the Festival. The score performed by an 80-person NFM orchestra represents magnificent music composed by Paul Anthony Romero. The opus consists of three symphonic suites – each of them presenting music from one of the games of the Heroes of Might and Magic series. The first suite includes music from HoM&M II, the second suite contains fragments of the Heroes III soundtrack, and the last suite comprises of songs heard in the fourth part of the game. Last year's premiere of The Symphony of Heroes was a tremendous success, and the tickets sold out several weeks before the event.
On the same day, during the evening gala, the artists will perform The Jazz of Grim Fandango – a tribute performance to Grim Fandango, the extraordinary adventure game which celebrates its 20 the anniversary this year. The main hall of NFM will host the top jazz tunes composed by Peter McConnell and performed live by the exquisite Bartosz Pernal Big Band. This event is officially presented in cooperation with Disney Interactive and Double Fine Productions. Furthermore, Peter McConnell himself will be present during the event.
The fourth concert of the festival will be The Symphony of the Storm, a monumental opus consisting of three suites: the first – devoted entirely to the ever-popular Diablo series, the second – presenting melodies from the World of Warcraft franchise, and the third – containing works known from both parts of StarCraft. The symphony will be performed by a full orchestra and the choir of the National Forum of Music; altogether over 120 musicians on the stage. The work combines music from many titles, created by multiple composers over the years. One of them will come to Wroclaw – Neal Acree will take part in the festival personally."
