Super Mario Symphony

Kris and I recently had the chance to see Symphony of the Goddesses, a Legend of Zelda symphony. It was absolutely amazing and we can’t wait until they come around again. There’s also a Pokemon symphony as well that we hope to see someday. While we keep our eye out for that one, we recently found out that the producer of Symphony of the Goddesses, Jason Michael Paul, has proposed a Super Mario symphony tour. He’s not sure if it will get approved, but we hope it is!

We found the article through Gamnesia, where Paul was quoted speaking of his hope to have a Super Mario Symphony. Considering how serious Nintendo is about proposals such as this, I suppose we’re very lucky to have the Legend of Zelda symphony! While I’d rather be in Hyrule than the Mushroom Kingdom, the music is one of my favorite aspects of the Mario games. I would adore hearing old tunes, such as music from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, from a full orchestra. Star Hill, Forest Maze, the Smithy boss fight… All epic music that would be amazing to hear from an orchestra!

Anything live with a full orchestra is amazing, let’s be real here… Mario music is awesome, but Paper Mario? Paper Mario is the best. I get those songs stuck in my head all the time and I would love to hear that live!

Paper Mario does have some great tunes, yes. And then Super Mario Odyssey? The music was my favorite part of the game! They’d have so much material at their disposal for a symphony. The article mentioned that Paul also was thinking of a Super Smash Symphony, but even he admitted that it would be a bit too much. He’s thinking of doing Elder Scrolls, and I’m thinking I would love a Fire Emblem Symphony.

Odyssey would be great. Even just hearing the old school Mario music would be so nostalgic. I would love a Smash symphony as well as Fire Emblem. I’m not too familiar with Elder Scrolls, but music in video games tend not to disappoint. If anything, I would love a Nintendo symphony where they have mixed music from all sorts of games and series.

A concert with mixed music sounds similar to what a Super Smash Symphony would be. There are a few artists on Spotify — Braxton Burks, Eric Buchholz, String Player Gamer — who have put out some fantastic orchestral tracks for Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, and Super Smash Bros., to name a few franchises, but it would be even better to see and hear the music live on stage!

What other symphonies would you like to see? Do you hope they add a Mario one? Let us know in the comments below!

The Legend of Zelda Symphony

Last night, we saw The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses, and… we’re exhausted, haha!

Honestly, there are no words adequate enough to describe how beautiful the show was. We’ve always been such big fans of the game franchise with the music being a huge factor, and to hear it live from such a talented orchestra was such a treat!

We first heard the show was coming near us way back at the beginning of the year, with us snagging tickets last March for it. We had center balcony seats, a nearly perfect view. The only people that we really couldn’t see were the choir — we only caught glimpses of their feet since the screen that played videos accompanying the music covered the choir from our angle.

The program that we listened to was phenomenal! There were scores from Breath of the Wild, Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, A Link to the Past, Wind Waker, A Link Between Worlds, and Twilight Princess. As a bonus, after the finale, the orchestra performed scores from Link’s Awakening and one final set from Breath of the Wild.

The music just made us want to go on an adventure and relive all of the stories and games once again!

Have you ever been to a Zelda Symphony? How did you enjoy it?
