Distant Worlds’ Nashville Premiere!

The Nashville Symphony presents “Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY”: the international concert phenomenon featuring Nobuo Uematsu’s stirring music from one of the most popular video games of all time! Conducted by GRAMMY Award-winner Arnie Roth with the Nashville Symphony, Distant Worlds celebrates over 25 years of FINAL FANTASY music accompanied by stunning video projected above the stage.
Highlights include new arrangements created for the 25th Anniversary plus classic hits, including
FINAL FANTASY IV: Battle with The Four Fiends
FINAL FANTASY IX: Vamo’ alla Flamenco
FINAL FANTASY X: Zanarkand
FINAL FANTASY VII: Aerith’s Theme
FINAL FANTASY VIII: Eyes On Me and
FINAL FANTASY XII: Kiss Me Goodbye featuring Kim Keyes
Although she is appearing as a guest vocalist with Distant Worlds and Nashville Symphony for the first time, Kim Keyes is no stranger to this stage or to Music City. Her soulful voice has enriched the recordings of artists including Peter Cetera, Amy Grant, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Jonny Lang, Lionel Richie, Billy Joel and Vince Gill. Whether in the recording studio or touring the world, her soulful Mississippi roots and diverse creative sensibilities deepen the experience. Join us as we welcome her with Distant Worlds on April 10th!
