Video_games_live

When it comes to booking live music, the folks who run the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational don't mess around. Video Games Live was there, an organization that has top orchestras and choirs perform music from popular video games synchronized with exclusive in-game footage. For this particular event, the VGL choir and orchestra performed the beloved themes from World of Warcraft and Starcraft (which you can see here and here).
