Des Moines Gamer Symphony Orchestra

The Return of the DSM Gamer Symphony!

Sunday, September 12 – 4PM
Jamie Hurd Amphitheater – West Des Moines, IA

Hear Us

Throughout the long pause of the pandemic, we continued to virtually play songs that gamers around the world know and love. But now, it is time to return to the stage. On Sunday, September 12, we will be performing a free, live concert at the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater in West Des Moines. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic blanket, and come listen to the glorious anthems and sonorous melodies from video games past and present

Check out our many virtual performances on our YouTube channel or the thumbnails to the right and follow us on Facebook.

Perform With Us

As we prepare for our September 12 concert, there are still a few spots on select instruments left to be filled. If you play a stringed instrument, please sign up here to learn more about our ensemble.




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.
