Musicians and choristers of the Montreal Orchestra Company performed beautifully composed soundtracks from video games made in Montreal and in Quebec City.

Video game and classical music enthusiasts entered the Palais Montcalm on April 12 for the Montreal Orchestra Company’s presentation of The Video Game Musical Odyssey, a concert featuring music composed for popular video games.

Those attending the event had the opportunity to play video games in the entry hall before and after the concert, and during intermission.
