Musicians unite: YouTube Symphony Orchestra

The YouTube blog announced a new initiative, the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. It's a pretty neat concept. If you're at all musical, you should check it out. Here's a bit of info from the site:

"Interested in joining the first-ever collaborative online orchestra? Professionals and amateur musicians of all ages, locations and instruments are welcome to audition for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra by submitting a video performance of a new piece written for the occasion by the renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). We have tools to help you learn the music, rehearse with the conductor and upload your part for the collaborative video."

Kewl idea!
