So tickets for the NYC show are still available? Hmm, going to have to seriously look into this. NYC isn't too far from where I live upstate so it might be worth it. Bit worried about the dress code though, never been to a live show that wasn't hard rock and they're pretty lenient with what you wear.
For the orchestra people normally tend to get a bit more dressed up, but it depends on your age really. if you're on the younger side you can pull off a nice collared shirts and some nice jeans (not frayed) with some dress shoes and a matching belt... i guess that's getting a bit specific. i would suspect that because distant worlds is catered to ff fans and it's not a standard symphony, you'll see a lot of gamers who may not be used to dressing up for the orchestra. i'd bet my hat you'll see some ff t-shirts at the very least; there might even be some cosplayers. having never went i can't say for sure, but one day...
it's probably worth mentioned that i've attended symphonies in about 10 different locations though, and none of those places have had an enforced dress code. so don't stress too much about it.
and also, wow: these orchestral tracks are amazing, amazing, amazing!
