Tonight YouTube made a little history. The YouTube Orchestra held its inaugural performance at Carnegie Hall. If only I lived in New York.. I don’t, I live in Chicago and I love it. I just wished I could’ve experience something incredibly unique this evening. Perhaps the next one can be hosted in Chicago. Of course, there is always the opportunity for a YouTube Opera here at Lyric Opera of Chicago. I guess we will all have to see how the concert went tonight. I am sure it was awesome based on some of the musicians selected.
Youtube posted a cool mashup of people that were selected to be a part of the orchestra, so I thought I would share. Pretty cool. …the orchestra even included a guitarist. Awesome!
Tan Dun, famous for composing the score for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, wrote the work Internet Symphony No. 1 just for this project. Hear is another video with Tan Dun talking about his inspiration for the work.
