Welcome to the world of orchestral video game music!

SCORE is the premier game music concert series in Scandinavia. Our shows are exciting musical adventures for hardcore gamers and orchestra fans alike. The music is always in full focus, without the distraction of a laser show or some guy dressed up like an Italian plumber. Our first production in 2006 still holds the world record for a game concert with an audience of 17 000. More importantly we have built a faithful audience over the years and have gained respect among the game composers themselves.
