Anime Evolution is proud to present A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY performing on Sunday, July 19th 2015 at UBC’s Chan Centre for the Performing Arts in Vancouver: the finale for the three-day Anime Evolution convention at UBC.

Under the direction of conductor Eric Roth, with acclaimed piano soloist Benyamin Nuss and the nimble New World Players 11-piece ensemble, this British Columbia premiere performance takes place in the renowned Chan Shun Concert Hall at the Chan Centre.

A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY presents fresh arrangements of music from throughout the 25+ years of the FINAL FANTASY catalogue for a variety of chamber ensembles. The programs feature string quartets, piano and guitar solos, duos, trios and other mixed groups of instrumentalists to produce an immediate and personal encounter with the extraordinary FINAL FANTASY musical themes, characters and settings.

The new FINAL FANTASY arrangements are written by Arnie Roth and Eric Roth of AWR Music Productions, the critically-hailed team behind the Distant Worlds concerts, with additional arrangements by Shiro Hamaguchi, Uematsu’s longtime collaborator on the FINAL FANTASY video game soundtrack recordings.

A New World joins Distant Worlds as an exclusive, officially licensed production with the renowned game developer SQUARE ENIX. A New World introduces audiences to the music from FINAL FANTASY on a personal and intimate scale that has yet to be experienced.

A pass to the Anime Evolution convention is not required to attend the performance.
