Our Fabulous Orchestra

Screen Shot 2018-01-06 at 1.42.41 PMAnd now a message from Orchestra Director, Ben Wallace! “Creating Aria Kart for this year’s Magfest has been an immense undertaking for both the cast and the musicians. Alongside writing a new script with all new props and sound effects, (not to mention an entirely new score and selection of songs,) we’ve doubled the size of the orchestra and brought in some super awesome musicians from across the VGM community. Joining us for the premiere of Aria Kart is an all star ensemble comprised of The Videri String Quartet, Triforce Quartet, DiscoCactus, Bassoonify, GameBrass, and a full choir. Special thanks goes out to all of our musicians and collaborators in the orchestra pit for their hard work, fantastic playing, and willingness to show up for a 7:30am rehearsal at Magfest. You guys rock:)” See our show TODAY at MAGfest!!! 6pm in Panels 3 and our behind the scenes panel is sunday at NOON!!!!
