Miami Dade College, North Campus gave gaming enthusiasts a major treat this summer by hosting the Emmy award-winning video game concert, Anime Invasion. The MDC Film Scoring Orchestra put on an immersive multimedia performance featuring music and video from gaming favorites such as Zelda, Halo, Skyrim, Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy. “I really appreciate having been able to help put on this production,” said Luciano D’Amico, who assisted in the concert’s musical arrangement. “Ever since I was little, I always wanted to see video game music or anime played live as an orchestra.” The concert took place immediately following Destination Dell, a partnership between MDC, Dell and Intel that brought Dell’s newest product lines powered by Intel to the College. Students also had the opportunity to participate in demonstrations of virtual reality applications and collaborative conferencing solutions, a benefit to those interested in the growing industry of STEAM, which encompasses science, technology, engineering, art and math.
