Today I attended an orchestra concert titled Distant Worlds. It was music from the very popular Final Fantasy games. An excellent excuse for ladies to get their geeky boyfriends to go out or for guys to pretend to be romantic. I probably fit more into the second category, since I took my wife and she has never played any of the games. But we both enjoyed it very much. The composer, Nobuo Uematsu, made a few appearances, although he didn't speak much. The crowd was not what you usually expect to see in any orchestra concert. Some were playing Nintendo DS while the concert started. I saw a few dressed up as Final Fantasy characters. Still, it was an enjoyable night with great music (much of which I could actually recognize). Go check out their site at www.ffdistantworlds.com!
