Musicians from Finland to New Zealand, from Austria to Vietnam, have submitted their audition videos to be part of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011 at Sydney Opera House. Now, with 336 finalists from 46 countries, it’s your turn to play your part: voting is open for who you think should make up the orchestra.
You can vote once per video, per day, until 23:59 EST on Dec’17 to help YouTube Symphony Orchestra Artistic Advisor Michael Tilson Thomas boil the 300 shortlisted hopefuls down to the final 96. Your votes are also needed to help choose four solo improvisers. “Mothership” composer, Mason Bates, will be using your input to choose from 36 soloists, including show-stopping performances on instruments like the guzheng, the musical saw and… the udderbot.
