Auckland Philharmonia’s Final Symphony Gets Second Show

Auckland Philharmonia’s Final Symphony Gets Second Show

The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and Auckland Live have announced that Final Symphony – the live concert, featuring music from the Final Fantasy series – will be getting a second showing on Saturday, October 22 2016.

“Final Symphony has built the reputation of being the finest example of what video game music has to offer today, thanks to its sophisticated arrangements,” says Final Symphony producer and director Thomas Böcker.

“We are seeing more and more people outside the usual gaming circles coming to these concerts. Likewise, fans of FINAL FANTASY often express an interest in experiencing other forms of orchestral music after a Final Symphony concert,” he adds. 

Concerts on 21 and 22 October mark the Australasian premiere of the sell-out world tour. The concert features tracks from Final Fantasy VI, VII, and X played by a live orchestra on stage at the Aotea Centre. It will be conducted by Eckehard Stier, who has conducted Final Symphony concerts around the world. PlayStation will also be on-site, giving concertgoers the chance to try out the PlayStation VR headset.

Tickets for both showings are $35-$75, and are available from Ticketmaster.
