Video games and symphony came together on Saturday for Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions at Heinz Hall. Princeton Entertainment and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra showcased music from the “Pokémon” series beginning with “Red” and “Green” for the original GameBoy, and working through each generation to “X” and “Y” for the 3DS.
This is not the first time the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has played songs from beloved video game soundtracks. Producer Jeron Moore and composer Chad Seiter tapped them in 2013 and 2012 for the Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses tour. Pittsburgh was just the third stop of the Pokémon tour, with more tour dates and locations being announced in the near future.
