The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is on Tour
After the success of The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony concerts last year, the memorable video game music from Nintendo is back on tour! Unlike last year's concerts, which only had three stops, the Symphony of the Goddesses will be playing all year round, at 17 different cities around North America.

The musical concert is roughly two hours in length and features music from almost all Zelda games. If you bought the most recent Zelda game, Skyward Sword, you may have noticed the music CD included. Many of the songs played can be found on the CD. The highlight of the concert is the four-movement symphony that covers themes from Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and A Link to the Past.
However, you don't have to close your eyes to picture yourself back in Hyrule. On stage is a large projection screen showing clips and moments from each Zelda game, as well as glimpses of the local musicians performing live on stage. In addition to the four movements of the Symphony of the Goddesses, there is the Overture, Creation of Hyrule, and several secret fan-favorites that are snuck in at the end of the concert.
