The Toronto Symphony Orchestra will plug into the passion and excitement of video games next month with Game ON!, a celebration of iconic game scores set to take place at Roy Thomson Hall.

On May 24 and 25, the TSO will perform symphonic arrangements of video game scores alongside stunning, never-before-seen HD video for both die-hard gamers and e-symphonic music lovers alike.

Soundtrack selections come from a lineup of blockbuster titles and franchises including The Elder Scrolls, World of Warcraft, Assassin's Creed, Bioshock, The Witcher 3, Ori, Guild Wars 2 and many more.

Both performances will see the TSO led by game music legend Andy Brick, known best as the prolific composer, conductor, and symphonist of music for popular video game titles including Assassin's Creed, the Civilization series, Guild Wars 2, Halo, SimCity, Super Mario Bros. and more.

Brick also holds the distinction of having conducted the first symphonic video game concert in the entire Western world. He says, "Get your friends, get your family, gamers, non-gamers — come on out!"

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra's Game ON! concert takes place at Roy Thomson Hall on May 24 and 25. All ticketing and event information can be found via the TSO's official website, where you can save on fees by using promo code "EXCLAIM" upon purchase.
