CLASSICAL | "Distant Worlds: Music from 'Final Fantasy'" 

For most video gamers, the "Final Fantasy" series is instantly recognizable for its epic nature. The storytelling is always grand, rich, and dramatic, and to match the vision, an equally impressive and emotional score is needed. It can be argued that a lot of the emotional intensity that exists in a "Final Fantasy" game is owed to the work of composer Nobuo Uematsu, who has created the majority of the series' orchestral pieces. Created in 2007 in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of "Final Fantasy," the "Distant Worlds" concert tour is the longest running "Final Fantasy" concert series, and on Thursday, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Arnie Roth, will perform a deep repertoire of Uematsu's moving works from the video game series. Madrigalia chorus and vocalist Susan Calloway will perform with the orchestra.

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra will perform "Distant Worlds" on Thursday, October 29, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $22-$114. rpo.org; ffdistantworlds.com.
