Two-Thousand Eleven was the year Nintendo celebrated the 25th anniversary since the release of the first Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda. As part of the anniversary, in October, there was a three concert series called The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony, which performed in Tokyo, London, and Los Angles. When The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was released in November 2011, The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD was released with every special edition of the game purchased. Though a Japanese based game, the CD was recorded far from there. The 25th Anniversary Special was recorded by the Orchestra Nova San Diego at Bastyr University Chapel in Kenmore, Washington.
