So quite an intense night at Carnegie Hall last Wednesday when the YouTube Symphony Orchestra finally made its debut.
The results of this project have been amazing. 25 million channel and video views. 30,000 subscribers. And PR uptake like no other, from TechCrunch to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Time, CNN, Reuters & the Guardian, from NBC to the BBC.
It was a stellar evening of entertainment, as 100 winners from 31 different countries assemble to perform Tan Dun's Internet Symphony No. 1 - Eroica, written especially for the YouTube community, under the watchful baton of world-renowned conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and classical superstars such as Mason Bates, Composer and DJ; Measha Brueggergosman, Soprano; Joshua Roman, Cello; Gil Shaham, Violin; and Yuja Wang, Piano. Every single winner auditioned on YouTube along with over 3,000 others from 71 countries.
