In addition to the great compositions of the past, this orchestra's repertoire includes original compositions of Berklee faculty, students, contemporary music from around the globe, and from burgeoning genres such as film and video game scores. Previous performances include a sold-out show at Symphony Hall—Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy; a collaboration with Grammy-winners Danilo Perez (piano) and John Patitucci (bass) in Jordan Hall; and a commissioned concerto for electric violinist Tracy Silverman.
