Oh, the 16-bit glory days of the Super Nintendo, when videogames were pixelated and blocky yet still wowed more than modern games do. Not relying on graphics and complex gameplay, the videogames of yore filled us all with awe via addictive gameplay, great storylines, and magical melodies that quickly became iconic tunes. To celebrate the classic songs of the SNES era of gaming, Montreal's Orchestre à vent de musiques de films will be hosting a "Super Nintendo Concert" a musical experience that already has your inner nerd grinning.
To be held on January 24th in Salle Marguerite-Bourgeoys at Collège Regina Assumpta, the SNES concert will feature all the classic tracks from the fourth generation of Nintendo games, including (but not limited to) A Link To The Past, Super Mario World, and Chrono Trigger. Expect many others from the games you wasted your childhood on.
Fleshing out the sounds of your youth, the orchestral versions of classic SNES tracks will surely be jam-packed with nostalgia, while also being fresh enough for your adult ears to enjoy in a new way. No doubt you'll love the orchestral covers, and folks who get their tickets before December 31st will also get a free CD of the tunes, so you can rock out to SNES tracks all the time.
