Hear Us

Despite all the hurdles in 2020 and now 2021, the DSM Gamer Symphony Orchestra continues to share and celebrate the wonderful, wide-ranging genre of video game music. While we anxiously await the return to in-person concerts, hopefully this year, we are so proud of the virtual performances that we can share throughout the Des Moines area and across the globe right now.

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.
