Gamer Symphony Orchestra Fall 2017 Concert
The student-run Gamer Symphony Orchestra is the first collegiate ensemble exclusively devoted to performing orchestral arrangements of video game music and using that music as an educational tool. All of our arrangements are created by GSO members and alumni. We now boast a roster of more than 100 musicians, including 30 singers, and play to packed houses at the University of Maryland's largest performing arts venue, the 1,100-seat Dekelboum Concert Hall! Our mission is to bridge the worlds of video games and the performing arts and promote orchestral VGM as an art form.

The Sound of Music in Concert
This final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy.

This innovative and intimate new theatrical piece from artists Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility, and our willingness to be there for one another. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience, The Fever examines how we assemble, organize and care for the bodies around us. Who will you be when our eyes are on you? What will we see when we all look your way?
