Malukah, whose cover of “The Dragonborn Comes” made a huge splash on YouTube, has agreed to appear at Jeremy Soule’s proposed Skyrim concert.
Jeremy Soule’s planned Skyrim concert just keeps on getting cooler. In case you missed it, the Skyrim composer took to Facebook last week seeking support for a live performance of music from Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim by a “world-renowned orchestra” in New York City. He hinted pretty strongly that he’d conduct the event and might even perform some of the music himself.
The concert has yet to be confirmed – and that makes this a good place to suggest that you nip around to Facebook and give the idea a “like” – but if it does go down, Malukah, whose stirring rendition of “The Dragonborn Comes” made a huge splash on YouTube but who may actually be better known to Escapist users for her great duet with Miracle of Sound on “Legends of the Frost,” will be there.
“Update! I have great news!” Soule wrote today on his Facebook page. “Malukah (whose performance of ‘Dragonborn Comes’ is nearing 10 million plays!!) has agreed to appear at the proposed New York concert!”
“I am also planning to make a new orchestration for Malukah which will be premiered at the concert,” Soule wrote in the comments section following the announcement. “A choir will be present for the performance!”
He also confirmed – again, assuming it actually happens – that there will be a meet-and-greet at the concert, and that there will be helmets.
Yup. Let’s make this happen, people.
