This was our 2016 - and a look into the future

What a year 2016 has been for us! We’ve seen more Merregnon Studios productions performed than ever before and all over the world too.

Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, the US, the UK, New Zealand and Germany - Merregnon Studios has traveled to every corner of the globe this year, with multiple performances of both Final Symphony and Final Symphony II. And that’s something we absolutely plan to continue into the new year, adding new destinations to our schedule and continuing our mission to bring video game music to people everywhere through our wonderful live concerts.

  • This summer, Final Symphony made its long awaited US debut, traveling to San Diego, Baltimore and San Francisco. We had the great honour of Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi attending both our San Diego and San Francisco shows, where he even agreed to give a pre-concert talk to discuss his career.
  • While Merregnon Studios is best known for its concert productions, we also coordinate many other musical projects. Earlier this year we supported composer Chris Huelsbeck with his successful Kickstarter campaign for Turrican II - The Orchestral Album, collecting more than 100,000 USD in pledges. It was recorded in Sweden by the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and recently released to rave reviews from fans.
  • In co-operation with Laced Records, Final Symphony and Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo saw brand new physical releases on double CD and triple vinyl. It is wonderful seeing two of our most beloved productions in different formats for fans to enjoy, especially when they come in such beautifully designed packages.

And our outlook for 2017?

Currently we have five concerts already announced for the coming year, but more and more will be added to the list in the coming weeks and months, starting in February with the performance of a Symphonic Selections programme by the Munich Radio Orchestra (tickets available here).

While it has always been our mission to entertain audiences worldwide, we’re also big supporters of the educational aspect of music. So we are happy to announce our co-operation with the National Youth Orchestra of Saxony for two concerts, in Leipzig and Dresden this April, presenting music from Final Fantasy, Turrican II, Clash of Clans and others (tickets available here).

Last but not least, we are very proud to continue our exceptional relationship with one of the world’s best orchestras, the London Symphony Orchestra. We’ll be heading to Paris in June with them for performances of Symphonic Selections and Symphonic Odysseys, with composer Nobuo Uematsu confirmed as being in attendance! (tickets available here and here).

We wish you all happy holidays and a wonderful 2017! And we look forward to seeing you at our concerts in the new year!
