Youtube symphony

December 11, 2008 at 12:04 pm (Uncategorized)

Here’s a crazy cool new thing I found on one of the blogs I have on my blogroll (the “Music Technology in Education” one). Apparently The London Symphony Orchestra, a famous conductor, and Carnegie Hall are working together with the resource Youtube to  achieve a pretty revolutionary musical feat. The project asks aspiring musicians to watch tutorials on Youtube of the conductor teaching his new piece. After watching and practicing, people can submit auditions via Youtube and compete for a spot in the Carnegie Hall performance of the new piece. While the chance for me or any friends of mine to make the cut is pretty slim, the project does introduce a great new idea for the future of auditions, performances, and lessons.
