Microsoft Store at Danbury Fair Mall presents Video Games Live with Tommy Tallarico with the excitement of a rock concert mixed with the power and emotion of a symphony orchestra and chorus, combined with the technology and interactivity, stunning visuals and fun that only video games can deliver.

This touring orchestral show will feature scores of video game music as a celebration of the entire video game industry, for people of all ages, at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, December 1, at 8 p.m. Featured are the Western Connecticut Youth Orchestra and members of The Ridgefield Chorale. This Media sponsor is CT BOOM.com.

Game franchises include: Mario, Zelda, Halo, Final Fantasy, Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, Sonic, Metal Gear Solid. Kingdom Hearts, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Mega Man, Myst, Tron, Castlevania, Metroid, Tomb Raider, Interactive Guitar Hero, Interactive Donkey Kong, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and many more. Classic Arcade Medley features more than 20 games from Pong to Donkey Kong. For audience members who come early, a video game festival will kick off the evening at 6:30 p.m. in the lobby including interactive game demos, a video game character costume contest, prize give-a-ways and game competitions.

Co-founder and current host of Video Games Live, Tommy Tallarico is the cousin of Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. Tallarico explains what’s behind Video Games Live: “We created VGL to prove to the world how culturally significant and artistic video games have become. We created the show, not only for gamers, but also for everyone to enjoy. The thing that makes VGL unique is that there are so many elements to the show. We have the orchestra and the choir all interacting in time with spectacular and beautiful visuals, rock-and-roll lighting effects, and the most up-to-date technology creating dramatic special effects. It is so important to realize that this is not just a show for gamers but that there are elements to excite everyone.” – Guy Cocker of Gamespot interview with Tommy Tallarico
