A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY concert will be held at Berkeley’s Hertz Hall on January 14th.  The New World Players chamber ensemble, led by acclaimed conductor Eric Roth, will perform classics from throughout the entire series. Specially featuring the music of composer Nobuo Uematsu, in this grand event.

Here is more about the ensemble from their website:

The producers of the live orchestra phenomenon Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY are proud to present another amazing FINAL FANTASY music experience.

We have taken the majesty and power of the symphony orchestra and distilled it down to its most intimate, achingly beautiful elements.

A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY presents fresh arrangements of music from throughout the 30+ years of the FINAL FANTASY catalogue. The programs feature string quartets, piano and guitar solos, duos, trios and other mixed groups of instrumentalists to produce an immediate and personal encounter with the extraordinary FINAL FANTASY musical themes, characters and settings.

The new FINAL FANTASY arrangements are written by Arnie Roth and Eric Roth of AWR Music Productions, the critically-hailed team behind the Distant Worlds concerts, with additional arrangements by Shiro Hamaguchi, Nobuo Uematsu’s longtime collaborator on the FINAL FANTASY video game soundtrack recordings.

A New World joins Distant Worlds as an exclusive, officially licensed production with the renowned game developer SQUARE ENIX. A New World introduces audiences to the music from FINAL FANTASY on a personal and intimate scale that has yet to be experienced.

Operation Rainfall will be present at the upcoming Berkeley performance, so be sure to say ‘hi!’ if you see one of us! If you’re interested in going, you can still buy tickets for a variety of dates in the United States and Germany here.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
