After making my orchestral version of the theme, “Misty Mountains,” from the movie, the Hobbit, I wanted to try my hand at yet another orchestral cover. When I heard that Game of Thrones Season 3 was going to be aired at the end of March, I decided that a cover of the theme song had to be done!
Once again, I enlisted the help of my awesome and talented friends from college to recreate the Game of Thrones theme song as a tribute to the series.
