YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011 is a collaboration with partners Sydney Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker and many other leading institutions of the classical music world. This event is being made possible by Hyundai. This time a new round of performers will be playing their part onstage at the iconic Sydney Opera House.
This time there're two ways to audition, for classical audition perform the pieces listed on the channel according to instrument. For the opportunity to contribute your own creation, choose solo improviser--it doesn't matter if you play trumpet, viola or didgeridoo. If you proceed to final stages, you'll join musicians from around the world in a week-long music summit with Grammy-award-winning conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, who returns to guide the orchestra.
