For the first time in Legend of Zelda music history, we want to record an epic, full-sized choir to accompany the music on our album.
With the help of our friends at Destructoid.com and OriginalSoundVersion.com, we’ve recently unveiled TWILIGHT SYMPHONY as an album featuring 2 ½ epic hours of entirely new, fully orchestral arrangements inspired by music composed by Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ōta, and Koji Kondo and spanning upwards of 40 tracks from the unreleased soundtrack of Nintendo’s highly acclaimed action-adventure game: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
As huge, dedicated fans of The Legend of Zelda franchise, The TWILIGHT SYMPHONY team has been painstaking in its effort to take Zelda Music to new heights, and we’re nearly done. With a solid plan to be project-complete by late Spring, we hope to have TWILIGHT SYMPHONY in your hands by Summer of 2011.
This is where you come in: for the first time in Zelda music history, we want to record a full-sized choir to accompany the music on the album. You can help make this dream a reality. We’ve setup an exciting system of incentives for those who want to donate on a variety of levels, and you can check those out here on our Kickstarter page.
So yeah, that’s it! We’d love for you to be involved. I invite you to stay up-to-date on our progress by visiting zreomusic.com. Also keep your eye out for news at PLAY-SYMPHONY.COM where you’ll soon see news on where you can hear the Overture from Twilight Symphony, live, in concert w/ a 90-piece orchestra and choir.
With that, I thank you for your support, for watching, and for listening.

Now that you've reached (and surpassed) your goal, when will choir for Twilight Symphony be recorded?
Great question! We're currently finishing the remaining tracks left on the album, some of which require choir. During this time, we're also working hard to prepare the choir parts and get everything ready for recording. There's a lot that goes into preparing music so that when the recording session rolls around, it goes off as flawlessly and professionally as possible! Unfortunately it's taking some time, but rest assured we're trying our best to get this all done before end of summer this year (2011). Either way, you'll be the first to know! Thank you for your patience as we put all of the finishing touches on this great project!
