The music from the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix video game will be among the scores premiered at the Video Games Live concerts set to begin on October 14th. A collage of Composer James Hannigan’s “Order of the Phoenix” music will be premiered along side other scores from popular video games such as: Halo 3, BioShock, Conan and StarCraft II. These concerts feature ‘music from the most popular video games performed by top orchestras and choirs, combining exclusive video footage and music arrangements with synchronized lighting, solo performers, special fx, electronic percussionists and unique interactive segments.’

The Video GamesLive tour will make stops across North America and the UK with more concerts planned for other countries soon. Complete tour information can be found in the press release here.

This is good news. The show last year in London was excellent. I actually think the game’s music is as good or better than the OoTP film score.

True !

The video game score is very good ! The Hedwig theme is present under several forms, very beautiful.

Too bad it will never be released.

Yeah, DF is right. The score from the game was long better that the film’s. And the worst is that Nicholas Hooper (from the movie) repeats for HBP!!! WHY? Take James Hannigan!!

I loved Hooper’s work. It supported the scenes in OoTP very well. It didn’t stand alone well, but it really added to each scene.
