Vancouver Symphony Orchestra plays Pokémon

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra brings the soundtrack for everyone from Pikachu to Chikorita to life, as Susie Benchasil Seiter conducts Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions at the Orpheum on Friday (July 7). It’s a show as likely to draw old-schoolers as new-schoolers, working its way through the music for “Red” and “Green” from the original Game Boy, all the way up to “X” and “Y” for the 3DS. In other words, for those who grew up trading cards and watching Ash wielding Poké Balls on TV or who spend their off-hours chasing Cyndaquils and Snorlaxes, it’s pretty much the soundtrack to your lives—with all-new arrangements and tons of video clips on the big screen.
