Happy New Year everyone!

Those of you who follow the posts on my facebook Fan Page have surely noticed my recent performances with a group called The Video Game Orchestra.
I have received a lot of interest and many questions about this, so I wanted to share here on my blog!

The VGO describes themselves as, “a Boston-based group that performs its own “rockestral” arrangements of music from popular video games with a rock band, orchestra, and choir!”
This group is made up of genuinely talented, gracious and kind musicians who I am grateful to have the honor to work with!

I was called to perform as a featured soloist with the “VGO” at their amazing Boston Symphony Hall performance, which culminated the end of their successful Kickstarter campaign. (See clips below)
I have since performed with the group at AnimeUSA and MAGfest. Every performance is a complete blast. The energy in the crowd is always amazing and I have had such a great time singing songs that mean so much to many people.
I know when I hear anything from Mario Bros. I turn into a 10 year old again, all giddy and excited, so I can relate!

I will be performing with them again this February and am looking foreword to it.
I am attaching a few photos and video clips from these performances. Enjoy!

  1. […] Ingrid Gerdes – High Priestess (self-produced): Gerdes’ music exists in a zone that incorporates a blend of soul, country, and pop with a touch of blues.  Her background includes study in opera, followed by a stint at Berklee College of Music.  This is her third release and she composed all of the material on this disc.  Themes are mostly about relationships and Gerdes’ commitment to making her own way as a woman in charge.  Her bio compares her to Dusty Springfield (think Dusty In Memphis) and that is an apt description.  Musical support is provided by Milt Reder (g, formerly with Barrence Whitfield and Susan Tedeschi), Duke Robillard’s rhythm section: Brad Hallen (b) and Mark Teixeira (d), and Aaron Lipp (organ, lap steel).  Click here for videos of Ingrid Gerdes, including the title song from this disc.
