Youtube Symphony Orchestra Sets Sights On Sydney Opera House

The democratization of the interwebs meets Sydney’s most iconic music venue as the YouTube Symphony Orchestra sets its sights on the Sydney Opera House for the next installment of its audition only concert series. Its inaugural performance was held in NYC’s Carnegie Hall last year and assembled over 90 musicians from 30 different countries for a “collaborative orchestra where amateur musicians can share their knowledge and experience of making music with the support of some of the world’s leading classical artists. “. So inclusive right?

After the audition phase, selected musicians will be invited to a week of rehearsals and master classes at an orchestra summit in March, culminating in a live performance conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas at The Sydney Opera House on March 20, 2011. For those not in Sydney, the performance will be live streamed to a global audience via Youtube. If you shred the cello or know someone who does, watch the video below then get working on your audition…
