Jim Moffat is a founding father of Collaboration and although he may get mad at me for saying it, he has over 30 years of collaborating in one form or another.
He also moonlights as a semi amateur / professional musician, blowing his French horn at any possible opportunity! Now Jim needs our help with the YTSO event:
The YouTube Symphony Orchestra is the world’s first online collaborative orchestra. In January, around a thousand people worldwide participated by submitting two required audition videos to YouTube and now it is down to a week long public vote of the final two hundred. Jim Moffat has been selected as one of nine French horn players to be put before the public vote. The winners, eighty people, including just four horn players, will be flown to NY to play in Carnegie Hall in April under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas
To vote for Jim and get him to Carnegie Hall:
Go to: https://www.youtube.com/symphony
Choose Category French Horn > Go
Scroll till you find “Mozart ala Moffat on Horn Video2”
Listen if you dare & thumbs up if you approve
(rules stipulated no accompaniment, max. 5 minutes)
Voting is open now and you can vote a maximum of once per day from now till Sunday, Feb 22.
Many, many thanks for your support and a mention in a twitter or blog here and there would be very much appreciated!
