A YouTube Orchestra?
December 2, 2008 § Leave a comment
In an attempt to increase the amount of classical music on YouTube and build a community of classical music enthusiasts, YouTube and Google have announced that musicians can audition for a special Carnegie Hall concert. Google commissioned Tan Dun to compose a piece for orchestra. Entrants then download the sheet music for their part, and then upload their audition to YouTube. A jury panel picks a shortlist of finalists, and then the winners are chosen by YouTube users. The winners then get to perform in a Carnegie Hall concert conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas.
