The big day arrived - amidst a bit of a downpour in Sydney but a spectacular lighting and staged production that will not be forgotten by anyone involved:
A YouTube-based orchestral audition and mash-up site for classical musicians around the world - featuring most of the world's top orchestras... LSO, Michael Tilson Thomas, Tan Dun, Lang Lang, Johannes Moser and symphony orchestras around the world...

Imagine what happens when left-handed latvian lute-players is the only filter...
