Re: YouTube Symphony Orchestra Contest
Thank you for auditioning for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. We received thousands of video submissions from all over the world, and congratulations on having yours accepted and considered for this global collaboration. While you were a potential candidate, only 200 musicians were selected as finalists to move ahead into the voting process of the program. However, your video will still be considered as part of our "mash up" video created for Tan Dun's "Internet Symphony" piece.
Also, once the voting process is over -- your approved audition videos will again reappear on the symphony channel for everyone to see.
Again, thank you for your participation in this unique classical music project!
The YouTube Symphony Orchestra Team
I have a "macam itu ke..." feel about it, but thanks everyone who tried to vote. I really appreciate the support.
