YouTube Music Announces Symphony Orchestra Finalists

Four months and hundreds of recorded submissions after we first reported on the YouTube Global Symphony, over 90 cream-of-the-crop hopefuls have been selected to participate in a classical music summit and grand performance at Carnegie Hall next month. The winners were announced today on the YouTube Blog.

YouTube presents the winning submissions with a custom new flash interface on their Symphony channel. There, you can choose which section of the orchestra you want to see videos of, or switch over to the videos YouTube created exclusively for the channel. Of course, you can then click on any video you like to favorite or comment on it. YouTube Music promises to keep the channel fresh with videos of the winners and the summit next month.

After watching quite a few of the performers, we know that (unlike with American Idol hopefuls), this crew really knows their stuff. Under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, all signs point to the concert being a treat. Plus, it is an unprecedented opportunity for talented musicians from all over the world to meet each other and their mentors – as well as being a resume highlight once it is complete.

Stay tuned for the grand finale, the Symphony Orchestra performance at Carnegie Hall. We are certain it will look (and sound) amazing when broadcast via YouTube HD.
