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.
