The Elder Scrolls: Baltimore

Last week while I was downstairs, I found one of these flyers advertising Play!: A Video Game Symphony, which will be making its way to Baltimore this summer. About an hour from our office, the concert will be on July 18th at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

As you might recall from this blog post, in the past, Play! has performed music from both Morrowind and Oblivion during their sets. I’m told by the show’s producer, Jason Paul, that this year’s program only features the Oblivion Suite (sorry Morrowind fans!).

If you’re interested in attending the Baltimore show, you might want to order tickets, or better yet, send us an email to be entered in a random draw to win a pair of tickets to the show of your choice (travel/accomodation not included). In addition to the Baltimore show, PLAY! has shows already planned for San Francisco (August 23rd) and Copenhagen (October 25th). If you enter, just be sure to put “Play!” in the subject line, and provide us with your name, email, and postal address. Thanks to Jason for donating these!

Who knows, if you end up going to the Baltimore show, you might run into some of the devs from the office.

  1. “I’m told by the show’s producer, Jason Paul, that this year’s program only features the Oblivion Suite (sorry Morrowind fans!).”

    Despite that poster explicitly listing only Morrowind? :?

  2. I’ll be going to this with a friend of mine. Sure it’s nerdy, but it’s also nostalgic, and pretty awesome to hear non-midi versions of many of my favorite old and new games.

    Of course today’s games don’t usually use midi for their audio, but being surrounded by the sound in a huge room is going to be a treat.

  3. Whether or not I win the drawing, I’m definitely going to this. After seeing the OneUps at PAX last year, I’ve become a fan of rehashed, live video game music.

    And Ryan is pretty spot-on with the nostalgia factor. Hope to see some of the BGS guys there!

    Also, for those who won’t be close to any of the Play! venues, Video Games Live (http://www.videogameslive.com) is a fantastic concert event worth looking into.
