Well, it’s nearly time for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra concert!
I’ve noticed a bit of news coverage over the last day or two about it in Australia. Like this one on the Sydney Morning Hearld website – http://www.smh.com.au/news/technology/web/video-in-symphony/2009/04/14/1239474911896.html.
I did have to re-upload my final Tan Dun video a month or two ago to be potentially used in the video mashup. I hope my video makes the cut! That will mean that the video of myself playing the Tan Dun symphony may appear for a split second at Carnegie Hall!
But.. oh.. I wish I had maybe chosen a different audition piece, like the Brahms Symphony. It might have increased my chances of getting through (looking at the proportion of finalists who played that as their audition piece). My lesson learnt – don’t choose the audition piece until you’ve heard and had a play through each one! Oh well, maybe there’ll be a next time…
