Ever since we saw the Distant Worlds concert last April we have been dying to see another concert at the Schermerhorn Center. When we learned that The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Master Quest was not only going to be at the Schermerhorn but was first on the tour we immediately started to get tickets.
Going in we were once again welcomed by the beautiful interior and exterior of the Schermerhorn center. This time we were a bit more prepared and dressed up for the occasion.
The integration of video and live music was much different than that used by the Distant Worlds tour. The music was timed out so that the video matched up as close as possible with the ebb and flow of the music. It was very interesting to see the monitor used by the conductor having the video that was playing for the audience as well as the measure number and other helpful tools. While I wished Song of Storm had made an appearance, the music choices were still recognizable and just as good.
It was difficult to take your eyes off of the screen playing all of the classic scenes of the Zelda franchise and even some new scenes from the upcoming Majora’s Mask 3D remake. The trivia before and during the intermission of the show was a very nice touch to keep the audience entertained.
All in all, this was a very different show than the Distant Worlds tour despite their similarity. But, this show was extremely entertaining and fun to watch, listen, and experience. We very much look forward to our next trip to the Schermerhorn Center!
