Mark your calendars! Coming to Denver for one night only, the Chicago-based Fifth House Ensemble teams up with composer Austin Wintory to present an original, interactive live performance of his Grammy-nominated score to the video game Journey. Described as “the most beautiful game of its time” by IGN, critics have called Journey one of gaming’s crowning achievements. It is the fastest selling game to date on the Playstation Network.

Never the same each time it is played, Journey is an interactive parable, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person’s life passage and their intersections with others. In this unprecedented collaboration, live musicians respond to the actions of game players in real time on stage.

Music at MSU Denver is proud to present this thrilling experience on Thursday, Ocrober 18, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the King Center Concert Hall on the Auraria Campus. Tickets are available at the King Center Box Office, via phone at 303-556-2296, or for purchase online
