    How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

    I'm surprised no one has posted this yet.

    A global, internet orchestra. And a chance to audition for Carnegie Hall.

    I don't think you can use sample libraries.

    Re: How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

    The YouTube Symphony Orchestra is making quite a splash!



    The YouTube Symphony Orchestra revolves around two main goals: the creation of a mash-up performance of a symphony from video submissions; and second, a live performance of the same symphony (written for the occasion by composer Tan Dun) at Carnegie Hall on April 15, 2009, with about 150 players selected on the basis of their YouTube video submissions.

    Interested participants -- who must be older than 14, and not bound by any contractual obligations that would limit the terms of their participation (ruling out most professionals) -- can download the score for "Internet Symphony No. 1: Eroica" at http://youtube.com/symphony after selecting one of 26 instruments (including a category for "other"). Those who simply wish to participate online can upload their videos of the symphony. Anyone auditioning for the live performance must submit videos of specified excerpts of the standard orchestral repertory by Jan. 28.
    Here is info from the YouTube site


    Some of you may recall that we tried to do a Carnegie Hall orchestra a few years ago but it didn't work out at the time. See --> http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...ad.php?t=35356
    Who knows, maybe in the future we can revisit this idea.

    This will be very interesting to see!

    I think I'd really like to be Tan Dun though...

    What a fantastic chance for young musicians and old alike to finally get a shot a Carnegie Hall. It will be interesting to see who the finalists are that get to Carnegie Hall.

    And the best part (IMHO) -

    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 idea seems to me very similar to European "Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra" under Herbert von Karajan/Claudio Abbado direction. Although YouTube uses latest technology for auditions and advertisement, the "GMYO" seemed much more professional to me - giving not only one performance but a month of touring to all countries the orchestra players came from. Pity the GPO Symphony idea did not happen. It would certainly bring more original inputs to the world of music, than YouTube
