Announcing The YouTube Symphony Orchestra (A Contest)

Want to play Carnegie Hall? Audition on YouTube.

You have until 28 January 2009 to submit two video entries on YouTube: one that reflects your musical talent and one that provides an interpretation of an original work, Internet Symphony No. 1, by composer Tan Dun.

A panel of experts will reduce the entries to a manageable number (does this process sound familiar?) and then we get to vote. Winners will be announced 2 March 2009. They will be flown to New York in April for a three-day workshop with Carnegie Hall conductor Michael Tilson Thomas prior to the 15 April 2009 performance.

In addition, YouTube has a series of master classes performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Learn more about composer Tan Dun.
