YouTube Symphony Orchestra selected
The YouTube Symphony Orchestra is tuning up and getting ready to play.
YouTube has selected the winners of its contest to create the world’s first online orchestra, choosing more than 90 professional and amateur musicians from over 30 countries through auditions on the video-sharing service.
Google-owned YouTube announced the winning musicians in a post this week on the YouTube blog and the orchestra’s YouTube channel, youtube.com/symphony.
The winners will travel to New York to take part in a three-day classical music summit culminating in a performance at Carnegie Hall on April 15 directed by Michael Tilson Thomas, music director of the San Francisco Symphony.Filed under: Arts & Entertainment
