A report Thursday (3/25) on WDSU.com (New Orleans) states, “The award-winning Video Games Live show is pulling out the stops in an effort to show the world how artistic and culturally significant the medium of video games has become. On April 1, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra will grace the Kenner Pontchartrain Center for a nationwide television special by PBS. The concert features music from popular video games. Orchestras and choirs perform along with video footage, synchronized lighting and interactive segments. The special is planned to begin airing July 31, and is planned to be released on DVD, Blu-ray and album. Video Games Live producers said this is the biggest production ever staged, with more special effects, screens and guests.”
