Gamer Symphony Orchestra, Spring 2014 Concert

GSO logo

Saturday, May 3, 2014
2:00 pm
Dekelboum Concert Hall

The Gamer Symphony Orchestra returns to the stage of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center for their annual spring concert. Join the GSO for an afternoon of orchestral game music, when they'll perform new arrangements from The Legend of Zelda and Pokemon and bring back crowd favorites like Kingdom Hearts and Phoenix Wright. The event is unticketed, so bring along your friends and family!

The student-run GSO works to establish video game music as a serious art form and to use that music as a way to bring new and younger audiences to orchestral performances. The GSO is the first collegiate ensemble exclusively devoted to performing orchestral arrangements of video game music and using that music as an educational tool. The orchestra began humbly in late 2005 with six members and now boasts a roster of more than 100 musicians, including 30 singers.
