UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra Fall 2013 Concert | Facebook

Oh yeah. I’m supposed to promo this.

Guys, if you’re in the Metropolitan D.C. Area or close enough, come check out our concert this Saturday!

As always, we’ll be performing in Dekelboum Hall in the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland, College Park. Admission is totally free! (Although, we have a special gift for $20-donors!)

Concert begins at 2:00 PM, and the doors open at 1:30 PM, but there are a bunch of other events happening on the same day, so get there early! Campus is metro-accessible (Green Line, College Park stop, metro bus and campus bus to Stamp Student Union), and parking in most lots is free on weekends.

If you want to know what I’m going to be doing, I, and two other very talented musicians, will be opening with a Persona 4 piece, and I’ll be conducting a piece in the first half!

The University of Maryland Gamer Symphony Orchestra perform a medley of Metal Gear Solid songs (and it’s a playlist, so their other songs follow if you watch on Youtube.  I recommend the Pokemedley.  It includes Black/White music.)

HEY!!!! ALL OF YOU IN THE WASHINGTON DC METRO AREA! LISTEN UP! Next Saturday from 2-4 at University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center there will be a free symphony orchestra. The group, called Gamer Symphony Orchestra, are the first, but not the only, collegiate video game orchestra. The orchestra is entirely student run and the concerts are free to the public.

The orchestra numbers around 150 students who have a love of not only music, but the soundtracks put into video games and each piece is student composed. They take video game music and convert it into an orchestra.

The games vary from old childhood favorites, like Mario, Zelda and Kirby, to highly detailed strategy games, including but not limited to Mass Effect, Kingdom Hearts, and Skyrim.

If you are able to come you don’t need to tell me but should you decide to let me know, it would be amazing to meet one of my followers in person.
