iconiQ The Soundtrack Orchestra MiLESTONES Concert

Marking ‘MiLESTONES’ at Season-Ending Concert

We ended our inaugural season with MiLESTONES: A Concert of Anime, Cartoon, and Video Games Anniversaries at the Loreto Theater in The Sheen Center. So many nostalgic shows reached their 15th, 20th, and 30th marks so we though it best to pay tribute to each one of them as well as our own one year anniversary!

Our 13-piece chamber orchestra performed music from Batman: The Animated Series, Intelligent Qube, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, The Simpsons, Super Mario Bros., and more in this 90-minute concert. Audience members were entertained by our video interludes which features members of the group talking about their memories of playing and/or watching their favorite animated shows & games!

Thank you to everyone who attended and all who’ve supported this ensemble along the way! We cannot wait to share everything we’ve got planned for our 2015-16 season!

‘PlayStation’ Console Concert a definite power-up

February is the month of love, so we celebrated by showing our love for video games with the first concert in our chamber music series: Console Concert 1.0: Sony PlayStation 1! Celebrating 20 years of PlayStation 1 games and music, we put together an interactive social event sponsored by the independent gaming store VideoGamesNewYork!

Attendees had the opportunity to play game levels as our 6-piece chamber ensemble – including violin, cello, percussion, keyboards, guitar, and bass – performed the accompanying music with special guests Rebecca Larkin and Tony Ramos. Classic like Final Fantasy VII, Spyro The Dragon, and Tomb Raider were featured along with lesser-known gems such as Intelligent Qube. A Tekken tournament was held and the winner received 2 free tickets to our May 30th concert!

We’re planning our next Console Concert to be a retro 21+ event set for June 2015.
