About this event

We have never battled a boss this big.

After years spent levelling up and assembling our party, AWO presents JOYSTICKS & JOURNEYS, a celebration of the best music from anime and video games. Set forth on a journey through decades of anime and gaming history, taking you on a Catbus ride from the slums of Midgar, through the rolling plains of Hyrule, and ending somewhere in space staring down a Halo ring.

Gaming aficionado Angelo Valdivia makes his conducting debut with AWO, featuring music by prolific composers Nobuo Uematsu, Joe Hisaishi, and many more.

Bust out the Pocky and get the squad together for South Australia's premier wind orchestra as we bring some of the best modern soundtracks to life as you've never heard them before!

"Ever inventive (and)...impressive" The Advertiser

Presented by:
Adelaide Wind Orchestra

Adelaide Wind Orchestra (AWO) is a ‘world class ensemble’ (The Barefoot Review) and considered as one of Australia’s foremost symphonic wind ensembles.

Building on the work of the late Robert (Bob) Hower at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, AWO was founded in 2012 by recent graduates, amateur and professional performers on the basis of a mutual love of the symphonic wind ensemble genre. AWO’s founding premise is presenting professional performances in an annual concert series format, and developing an audience for this music in Adelaide.

Since 2012, AWO has been committed to presenting new music and promoting Australian composers. AWO has brought new compositions to Australian audiences giving numerous SA premieres, nineteen Australian premieres, and eleven world premieres.
