Join WMGSO for their first ever recital featuring Ryan Petersburg on trumpet and Kai Diaz on violin as we tour the amazing scenery of Hyrule with music from the Legend of Zelda series. We will be splitting the proceeds from this recital 50/50 between Living Faith and WMGSO. Living Faith will be donating their half of the proceeds to Lutheran Disaster Response - Puerto Rico.
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.
