It premiered here in the UK on Sunday 20th December, I am so happy to have been able to attend. I went with my sister and it was an absolute blast!! I've loved orchestral music from a young age, and for as long as I've loved Pokemon I've badly wanted to be able to hear the music played by a live orchestra, so when they announced this concert was coming to London I was crazy excited and booked it as soon as possible . The music was beyond amazing; the battle themes in particular were brilliant, as the drum beats just reverberated through you so powerfully. The theme for the Vs Red battle, now that was phenominal and, dare I say it, epic. There's a fairly decent recording of it here for those who haven't heard it:
The atmosphere at the concert was great, there were so many awesome hats, hoodies, shirts and cosplay outfits worn by other fans (I wore a Hawlucha hat myself, while my sis had a Squirtle hat on). My inner child was so happy singing the 'Gotta Catch 'em All' song toward the end of the night XD
My sister bought an official poster for me (thank you again Becky!!), after the show we were able to get it signed by the conductor and presenter (now I'm just waiting on a massive frame that will fit the thing, haha). During the signing I asked the presenter whether they had any plans to release the tracks on CD like the LoZ Symphony of the Goddesses tracks were, and he said that they really want to and are pushing for it. Let's hope they can!
In short, if any of you are able to get to one of the upcoming concerts but are not sure about doing it, go for it. It's so worth it
And so another new year begins, it's madness. Still feels like 2015 had barely started! Now I think it's time to just upload several pictures all at once, to make up for my recent lack of new work. So, here goes!
All the best to everyone!
