Join Robert Luke Martin, Jose Daniel Ruiz, Emmanuel Lagumbay, Tyler Modesto, Ann Zeng, and May Claire La Planted as they discuss creating and developing video game music performance groups at PAX West 2016 in Seattle, Washington. 

From the PAX website: 

In the early 2000s, video game music began to be recognized by professional orchestras as concertworthy by both its measure of artistic merit and the passionate audiences it attracts. Acts such as Video Games Live have paved the way for a new scene taking place throughout colleges nationwide. Join the founders of these ensembles as they share their experiences and how YOU can become involved in bringing the joy of game music to your own community, no matter what your musical background may be.
