You Tube Symphony Orchestra ~ Monday, January 12, 2009
Calling all Classical musicians... YouTube seems to have launched the equivalent of American Idol for Classical musicians with its YouTube Symphony Orchestra. A rather interesting, collaborative concept in music, I'm really curious to see what emerges. So often the original intention kind of fizzles out but there are all sorts of other serendipitous and often extraordinary results with such initiatives and undertakings. It'll be interesting to see whether that happens with this one.
I like this project all the more for it being not altogether motivated by commercial interests. Hopefully it will help add relevance to classical music by enhancing its presence within the online community. I'll certainly be following its progress and seeing what comes of it!
