YouTube Symphony Orchestra

April 18, 2009


An orchestra created entirely through YouTube performed in New York’s Carnegie Hall on Wednesday night. After auditioning over 3,000 musicians -via YouTube submissions- and tallying via online “favorites” voting with final judging by major orchestras, 93 were chosen  from 30 countries and flown in to perform Chinese composer, Tan Dun’s ‘Internet Symphony No. 1’ . Apparently the performance had a standing ovation (around the world) and in particular at Carnegie Hall under the baton of Michael Tilson Thomas.

There hours of concert waiting for you. Full symphony as well as 3 little kids playing a 6-handed piano piece! Astonishing.

“Interactive, creative, fluid, democratic” are some descriptive words from Thomas.
