Where would our show “Aria Kart with Live Orchestra” be without a fantastic Orchestra and Chorus arranged by and under the baton of Ben Wallace and our Chorus Director Jesse Buddington!?!? Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for being part of our success at MAGFest this week! #AriaKart
Many thanks again to MAGfest for having us return as Guests this year to premiere our latest creation, “Aria Kart with Live Orchestra”. It was a smashing success! We had lines out the door, closed the room at capacity (again) AND they were able to stream us LIVE in realtime! More updates soon, after we get a second to catch our breath! PHEW!!!!
Currently the whole team are packing up leaving the convention center and are en route to their homes and families. Safe travels and endless thanks again to our fabulous cast, crew, musicians, and fans!
CORRECTION, our behind the scenes panel “From Daydreams to Stage” will be at NOON not 1pm as we originally posted online. See us at NOON in Panels 4 for behind the scenes on how we created the first show and our sequel, ARIA KART. QA included!
And 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!!!!
Once again, we give thanks to Google for helping make our show possible. Even though our cast and crew are scattered around the globe, thanks to Google Docs and Google Hangouts we have been running some awesome rehearsals for our premiere of #AriaKart with Live Orchestra.
We perform one week from today at MAGFest in DC!!!!! Catch us on saturday at 6pm in Panels 3!!!!
Hooray! the MAGFest schedule is now live! Lots going on two weeks from now, including our live performance return with “AriaKart with Live Orchestra” on Saturday at 6pm in Panels 3 and our behind-the-scenes presentation will be on Sunday at 1pm! See MAGfest 2018 on guidebook for more details!
