‘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.
