I can’t believe it!
After receiving the email about being a potential finalist, and some musings that it doesn’t necessarily mean that I could be an actual finalist, I got the email from YouTube saying that I really am a finalist in the YouTube Symphony 2011 competition!
What does this mean? It means I’ve progressed to the voting round. It seems they’ve whittled down the field to 80. If they are choosing 8 desks of 1st and 2nd violins, that’s 32 to get through. Although the fine print says that the number of votes doesn’t totally govern who gets through, it sure would be nice to get at least a few votes!!
So, if you have a spare minute, just log onto the YouTube Symphony website (http://www.youtube.com/symphony), click on Vote then Orchestral Auditions, click on the Violin section (bottom left next to the conductor) and then scroll to find my video (Jason Chong), click on it then click Vote!
What do you get? I can’t offer you much unfortunately, but maybe a shout out on my blog!
