Minnesota violinist Marc Levine is among 200 finalists auditioning for a place in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, believed to be the world’s first collaborative online orchestra. Winners will perform in Carnegie Hall in a concert conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas of the San Francisco Symphony.
The 100 winners are determined by how many votes they receive in a thumbs-up, thumbs-down system. Unfortunately, voting ends Sunday, Feb. 22.
