Classical appreciation – YouTube style

Standard

I’m not sure what to call this collaborative orchestra that YouTube is putting together.  Is it an experiment?  A challenge?  Or a stunt? 

Whatever it may be it will provide an awesome opportunity for a number of curious cyber musicians to strut their stuff.  The website is asking musicians of all types and ages to submit a video performance as an audition.  They are asked to perform a specific piece which has been specially written by Chinese composer, Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).

It levels out the playing field and gives those chosen an opportunity to perform live at Carnegie Hall this April.  You can read more about the project and goals – deadline for auditions is January 29th.
