(…) Finalists will be chosen by a judging panel and YouTube users to travel to New York in April 2009, to participate in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra summit, and play at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.”

The deadline for all video submissions is January 28, 2009. Website: www.youtube.com/symphony. The double bass masterclass can be found here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NS8s199fxU
