Video game music orchestras have blasted onto the scene in only a little more than a decade. Having performed with two similar ensembles in the Washington metropolitan area, the founder of the Des Moines Gamer Symphony Orchestra wants to bring this shared passion to Des Moines to celebrate these amazing songs and inspire all listeners to a lifelong love of music. This ensemble will be a hub for musicians and video game music enthusiasts dedicated to performing powerful and unique concerts of this breakout genre.
