WMGSO Performance 2 of 2
Made of section and principal players from WMGSO, this wind quintet features some of the best the orchestra’s wind section has to offer. Comprised of a flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and horn, the wind quintet has a wide variety of tone colors and different blended sounds to choose from. This group uses them all in our arrangements, featuring several nostalgic tunes from the 8– and 16–bit era of gaming, with an occasional song from more modern sources.
The Washington Metropolitan Gamer Symphony Orchestra is a community orchestra and choir whose mission is to share and celebrate video game music with a wide audience by putting on affordable, accessible concerts in the Washington, D.C. region. Game music weaves a tapestry of the traditions, values and mythos of video game culture. In it we find deep emotion and truths about life, as well as new ways of expressing ourselves. We find meaning and beauty that transcends the medium of games and stays with us for life. Despite this, these soundtracks largely escape recognition in professional musical circles. WMGSO is dedicated to showcasing this emerging art form and highlighting the virtuosity of its composers.
