Next Friday December 2nd, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the award-winning LA-based Irish video games music composer and conductor Eimear Noone will collaborate for the very first time to perform a selection of video game tracks and classical music hits from well-known titles like World of Warcraft, Resident Evil, Skyrim, Final Fantasy, Advent Rising and Tetris.
Noone, who is known for her work as a video games composer for games like Heroes of The Storm, StarCraft II, Metal Gear Solid, Hearthstone, Overwatch and the BAFTA nominated score to Diablo III, says that ‘this is the first concert of its kind anywhere in the world and one I am tremendously excited about’.
Guest artists on the night include singers Sibéal Ní Chasaide (Warlords of Draeno – Malach, Angel Messenger) and Sarah Shine (Tetris Opera and Advent Rising), along with New Dublin Voices and Mornington Singers.
Tickets are available from €20 from National Concert Hall.
