Synopsis

History

Officer Board


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. We were founded in 2005 by Michelle Eng and now boast a roster of more than 100 musicians, including 30 singers. Our members reherase for two hours a week, the orchestra meeting every Sunday evening the chrous meeting every Monday evening. We also have occasional Thursday rehearsals, and the chorus will join some orchestra rehearsal, particularly near the end of each semester.

We have played to packed houses four years in a row at the university's largest performing arts venue, the 1,100-seat Dekelboum Concert Hall! We have also performed to over 1,000 twice at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, our first time as part of their Art of Video Games exhibit and the second as part of their Watch This! Revelations in Media Art series.
