a marvelous project; the Youtube Orchestra, said the elusive Princss Haiku

I first heard about the youtube orchestra that was forming a few months ago and now it a reality. Discover for yourself. Follow the link, hear a wonderful video of Lang Lang playing with the Berlin Phil and dream of a world without borders. Artists always lead the way.

We called for professionals and amateur musicians of all ages, locations and instruments to audition for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra by submitting a video performance of a new piece written for the occasion by the renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun.

Finalists are selected by a judging panel comprised of the world's most renowned orchestras. Vote for your favorite instrumentalists on YouTube from February 14-22.

Winners are announced on March 2nd and will be invited to travel to New York in April 2009, to participate in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra summit, and play at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.

All the Tan Dun submissions will be compiled into a mashup video which will be premiered at Carnegie Hall on April 15th and then hosted on this channel on April 16th.
