This concert is organized by the Music in Games Society at Indiana University and is graciously funded by the Indiana University Funding Board. For this collaboration, the Music in Games Society has brought in the Videri String Quartet, a renowned group celebrating the crossroads between video game music and classical music.

The Videri String Quartet will be performing six original video game music arrangements from games such as Nier: Automata, Final Fantasy XV, Mario Galaxy, and more, and each of these pieces have been written by IU students specifically for this concert!

If that wasn’t cool enough, this concert will additionally be accompanied by video game footage and select presentations about the pieces! Both Videri and the arrangers within the Music in Games Society worked dedicatedly to refine these works and present them to the community, so come and support us and enjoy some amazing video game music!
