The YouTube Symphony Orchestra
Play your part in music history.
Interested in joining the first-ever collaborative online orchestra? Professionals and amateur musicians of all ages, locations and instruments are welcome to audition for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra by submitting a video performance of a new piece written for the occasion by the renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). YouTube has developed tools to help you learn the music, rehearse with the conductor and upload your part for the collaborative video.
And how do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice and upload. Send them your talent video performance from a list of recommended pieces. Finalists will be chosen by a judging panel and YouTube users to travel to New York in April 2009, to participate in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra summit, and play at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.
(This information is available on the channel, I just re-worded it in third person)
The deadline for all video submissions is January 28, 2009.
The sheet music is a pdf file and free. Violin 1 and 2 parts are available and you can participate playing the viola as well.
I hope any of you interested participate! YouTube is truly making history, with this new oppurtunity, as well as the YouTube Live event that took place recently.
