As a two-time Distant Worlds attendee (third-time, as I’ll be attending in Dallas), this concert series holds a special place in my heart. I’ve gotten numerous opportunities to interview members of the team, including Arnie Roth, Susan Calloway, Nobuo Uematsu and Masashi Hamauzu, and can personally vouch for the natural passion and excitement these individuals bring to each concert. If you live near one of these cities, do yourself a favor, and attend the show. It will be a musical experience that you’ll never forget.
