Catherine explains why they brought this concert to the Mann Center.
“Quite frankly orchestras are doing them around the country. It has become sort of an annual calling for many orchestras because they get an audience that they traditionally do not see or hear or experience. And we are constantly being asked what are you doing next year in the world of video game music.”
