What began with auditions from approximately the world uploaded to YouTube, millions of video views, and hours of rehearsals, finally comes to life this Sunday, March 20. It has been an strange experience for the 101 winning musicians of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, and in just a pair of days their joint experience will come to life at Sydney Opera House.
Here’s a preview of what’s to come:
The week-long YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011 festival includes melodic collaboration between orchestra members and world-class mentors, outdoor performances, local Aussie experiences, band concerts and more. In just a few days, the creativity and technology that have motorized this journey will literally light up Sydney Opera House—with animated visuals on the interior and exterior projections on the iconic sails, all synchronized to the music of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011’s performance.
You’re invited to skill this wonderful event, whether you’re inside Sydney Opera House, out around Sydney Harbour, or watching from your computer elsewhere in the world. The Grand Finale will be live-streamed on youtube.com/symphony beginning at 8:00pm Australian Eastern Standard time, and rebroadcast until the concert presentation is uploaded in full, so tune in on Sunday, March 20.
