Greetings to everyone from the YouTube Symphony Orchestra Summit! Yesterday was the first day of the summit, and everyone came together for a delicious dinner in the penthouse of the Parker Meridian Hotel, just down the street from Carnegie Hall. Here's my first vlog (video blog) of the event. Watch for cameos from fellow vlogger Jeremy Denk, conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, violist Roberto Diaz, and Gil Shaham!
I'm glad you captured that great speech by Michael Tilson Thomas (it starts 2.05 minutes in)! Sounds like it will be a fun week!
Check in with Ben Chan and ninaflute for us, too!
Keep the VLOGS coming. Good job.
Wow, thanks for posting that. I felt like I was there. The video truly captures the feeling so much better than words. Keep the videos coming!
Have a wonderful time - MTT works in such depth, it can seem challenging but the end result is so rewarding and fulfilling!
Thanks so much for giving us an insider's view through your videos. I'm looking forward to future vlogs from you.
hey Caeli! thanks so much for sharing - this is going to be so amazing! I'm looking forward to more...
I just thought I'd suggest a hotel practice mute, so you get no more noise complaints! I like the heavy metal clunkers; they have silver colored ones and I think brass ones. there are also rubber ones but I don't think they dampen the sound as much. and they're not too expensive... about $12 I believe.
Thanks, Mazz! I actually own one of those, but my sister borrowed it and never gave it back. I didn't realize it was still missing unitl Iooked for it in my case! :(
Congrads! You Go Girl!
That's awesome! Thanks so much for posting all these videos! I love the comment from the guy who says 'I'm a violist so I'm just the freeloader in the middle of the harmonies.' Ha! :)
