WMGSO is raising funds to purchase an electronic keyboard and accessories for our choir to better be able to practice and perform at various venue locations. If we have a WMGSO-owned keyboard, we can more easily break out into choir sectionals in multiple rooms in our rehearsal venue. We currently have access to an upright piano in one room. In order to break out into sectionals, we rely on our Members to bring their personal equipment. We would like to move away from that reliance to reduce risk of wear and tear on Member equipment.
We have a budget plan for this fundraiser that includes different price tiers of pianos as well as accessories like speakers, stands, and cases. Since electronic keyboards are expensive equipment, we plan on purchasing a hard case to keep it safe. Here is the equipment that we're looking at:
|$2,200.00 - Korg SV-2 88-key Stage Vintage Piano|
|$2,900.00 - Roland RD-2000 88-key Stage Piano|
|$3,500.00 - Nord Piano 5 88-key Stage Piano|
|$380.00 - Gator GK-88 Semi-Rigid Keyboard Case|
|$600.00 - Gator GTSA-KEY88D TSA Series Keyboard Case|
|$219.00 - Behringer Ultratone K450FX - 45W 10" Keyboard Amp|
|$461.00 - Roland KC-80 - 50W 10" Keyboard Amp|
|$685.00 - Roland KC-400 - 150W 12" Keyboard Amp|
|$70.00 - Gator Frameworks GFW-KEY-2000X Deluxe X-Style Keyboard Stand|
|$102.00 - Ultimate Support JamStands JS-MPS1 Multi-Purpose Mixer/Keyboard Stand|
|$157.00 - On-Stage Stands KS7350 Folding-Z Keyboard Stand|

The Washington Metropolitan Gamer Symphony Orchestra (WMGSO) is a nonprofit community orchestra whose mission is to share video game music by putting on affordable, accessible concerts in the D.C. area.
Founded in 2012, the ensemble has grown to nearly 100 members between the orchestra and choir. WMGSO stages concerts three times a year: full ensemble concerts in the fall and spring and chamber concerts in the summer. Additional chamber performances occur at fundraisers, conventions, and community outreach events throughout the year.
In celebration of WMGSO’s five-year anniversary in 2018, the ensemble recorded its first professional album. WMGSO: The Album includes 12 tracks performed by the full orchestra and/or choir. Thanks to meeting crowdfunding stretch goals, an additional eight tracks of chamber music was released shortly thereafter as a download-only album, WMGSO: The Album DLC. Both albums are available for purchase online.
