The Symphonic Game Music Concerts (German: Symphonische Spielemusikkonzerte) are a series of award-winning, annual German video game music concerts initiated in 2003, notable for being the longest running and the first of their kind outside of Japan. They are produced by Thomas Böcker and performed by various orchestras conducted by Andy Brick (2003–2007), Arnie Roth (2008, 2009 and 2011), and Niklas Willén (2010, 2012).
From 2003 to 2007, GC in Concert took place at the Gewandhaus zu Leipzig and was held as the official opening ceremony of the GC – Games Convention, a trade fair for video games in Leipzig. In 2008, the cancellation of the concert by the Leipzig Trade Fair resulted in a cooperation with the WDR, eventually spawning new video game music performances by its in-house ensembles, principally presented at the Cologne Philharmonic Hall.
