YouTube Symphony Auditions 2010 – 2011

Auditions Youtube Orchestra 2011.

Online auditions are now open for the Youtube Symphony, a project that allows musicians from across the world to upload their performance piece to Youtube for a chance to play with the YouTube Orchestra at the Music Summit in Sydney Australia on March 20th 2011.

This is the second year Youtube has done this and last year the music event sold out the Carnegie Hall concert featuring more than 90 musicians from 30 countries.

“We’re exploring how classical music’s 1200-year-long tradition can enter the realm of high technology,” – Grammy-award winning conductor Michael Tilson Thomas

March 2011 will mark the YouTube Symphony Orchestra’s return – and once again, we invite you to be a part of it. There are two ways you can audition: submit your video audition for the orchestra or submit a solo improvisation to a piece composed specifically for the orchestra by American composer Mason Bates.

The best and most creative performers will be selected to form the YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011 and invited to perform in March at the Sydney Opera House, under the direction of world-renowned conductor and YouTube Symphony Artistic Advisor, Michael Tilson Thomas.
