YouTube Symphony Orchestra

No Comments Australia

I read about something very cool the other day, the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. It’s a partnership with London Symphony Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker, Sydney Symphonyb and other leading institutions of the classical music world and in this event 101 musicians from 33 countries around the world will perfom alongside prominent international and Australian musicians. The 101 musicians (read more about them and listen to them HERE) have been selected after they submitted a video audition on YouTube and were selected by public vote to come to Australia to perform on the Sydney Opera House stage.

This is the second year this event take place, last year YouTube invited musicians to audition for the world’s first-ever collaborative online orchestra. Thousands of amateur and professional musicians from 73 countries submitted videos to YouTube. The public voted and in April, 2009, 96 artists made history when the YouTube Symphony Orchestra made its debut at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

This year’s event is hosted in the Sydney Opera House 14-20 March. The live event spans over 6 days and features 4 ensemble concerts and a finale gala event. If you happen to be in Sydney you can get tickets on Sydney Opera House’s website – HERE.
