About Us

The Madison Gamer Symphony Orchestra (MGSO) aims to revolutionize the world of symphonic music through the first-class performances of video game music meticulously arranged for full symphony orchestra played by professional local Madison musicians.

Video game music is intergenerational, resonating with both the young and the young at heart, forging connections across age groups and backgrounds. It's cross-cultural, breaking down language barriers and uniting people worldwide with its emotive and evocative compositions.

MGSO serves as a solution to dwindling audiences of instrumental music performances by infusing new life into the world of instrumental music. By introducing younger patrons to the orchestral experience through the music of their favorite games, we're helping to ensure that symphonic music remains vibrant and relevant for future generations.
