Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses  
Friday, Jun. 30, 2017, 7:30 p.m. 
Saturday, Jul. 1, 2017, 7:30 p.m. 
Boettcher Concert Hall 

Fall in Love. Again. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses will perform with your Colorado Symphony on June 30 and July 1, 2017, bringing an updated orchestral adventure to the Boettcher Concert Hall. The show will feature some big surprises, including an all new movement from Skyward Sword, an updated overture, and the return of a classic that might just make some wishes come true! 

Celebrating 30 years of stirring virtual adventure and memorable soundtracks with live orchestral renditions directly approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, The Symphony of the Goddesses is now in its fourth season. The two-hour concert comes to life with a 66-piece orchestra, 24-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from recent and requested Zelda games, including A Link Between Worlds, Twilight Princess, and the remake of Majora’s Mask, while still paying homage to such classics as Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music, recalling moments of Link conquering dungeons, running through forests, and struggling to decide what color tunic to wear. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.  

Free Season Preview 2017/18  
Saturday, Jul. 22, 2017, 7:30 p.m. 
Boettcher Concert Hall 
 
In this free-to-the-public concert, Colorado Symphony Music Director Designate Brett Mitchell, Associate Conductor Christopher Dragon, and Assistant Conductor Andres Lopera will each lead the Colorado Symphony through selections they'll each be conducting in the upcoming 2017/18 Season. Admission is free, but tickets are required for admission. Tickets will be available Jul. 7 through Jul. 22, in person, at the Boettcher Concert Hall Box Office. All seating is general admission and a ticket does not guarantee a seat.  

"One of my favorite things about the Colorado Symphony is the extremely wide variety of programs we offer — from classical to pops for adults, as well as education and family concerts for our younger fans — so I'm always excited for the chance to show the audience at our Season Preview concert that there really is something for everyone at the Colorado Symphony," says Music Director Designate Brett Mitchell, who begins his role as Music Director on Jul. 1, 2017. 

"La La Land is such a terrific film, and we're thrilled to perform the full movie score especially this quickly after its run in the theaters. I'm proud to say we're offering the only concert of its kind in the region. Whether or not you saw it in the theaters, you'll get an even more dramatic effect seeing the full movie play on-screen with live symphonic music," Colorado Symphony Chief Artistic Officer Anthony Pierce.
