Arnie Roth, Conductor

This spectacular concert features the music of Japanese video game composer Nobuo Uematsu and others, and is conducted by GRAMMY award-winner Arnie Roth. This multimedia experience combines stirring screen images to match the soaring emotions of the Seattle Symphony performing music from SQUARE ENIX’s world-renowned FINAL FANTASY video game series.

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
Dear FINAL FANTASY fans,
We regret to announce that Nobuo Uematsu will NOT be able to attend these performances. We are deeply sorry for this, and we wish Uematsu-san the speediest of recoveries. Please see his following message:
Dear friends attending the Distant Worlds shows in Seattle,

Firstly, thank you for your continued support of the FINAL FANTASY game series and its music.

While I was originally planning to attend the wonderful performances by the Seattle Symphony with all of you, I must announce an unfortunate change of plans. Due to persistent and overwhelming physical fatigue, I regret to say that I cannot attend these concerts.

Right now, I must focus on rest and recovery so that I can regain my health as soon as possible and continue working with my good friend, Arnie. I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Sincerely,
Nobuo Uematsu
