    Exclamation Please vote for me for the Youtube Symphony Dec. 10-17!

    Hey all! I don't regularly visit this part of the forum, but I just wanted to invite all my fellow figure skating fan family to help me become a member of the Youtube Symphony Orchestra that will perform at Sydney Opera House in March of next year. It would mean a lot to me.

    The public voting is part of the final round of the audition. All the competitors had to pass a preliminary round to get to this point. Voting takes place Friday Dec. 10-17 and you may vote once each day. The only requirement to vote is that you have a youtube account. If you don't have one, it doesn't take long to create one and you don't have to actually share videos.

    Starting Friday, to vote for me please visit http://www.youtube.com/symphony and find the viola audition videos. My name is Bryan and this is my audition video just so you can recognize it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j24ukxYZXs

    Another option is to join the facebook group to get reminders each day to vote: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=173752879311427


    Thank you all so much!!!

    Beautiful!!! It's a shame there isn't more music out there for the viola, and you guys are usually stuck with extremely boring stuff. (This said by a violinist who also dislikes the tendency of violin music to be all flashy and crap.) The viola produces such a gorgeous sound when played really well. Love Mozart's concerto for viola & violin.

    Wow, that was quite good! Past amateur pianist here, and I like to think I can recognize good sound and technique instantly, even on string instruments. Will vote for you! Good luck!

    I voted for you also. I had a great time voting in some of the other instrument categories. The bassoon category was fabulous!

    Thank you all! Yes, voting has officially begun. You can vote for me by finding the red "Vote Now >" tab on the youtube symphony page and finding the viola audition videos. My audition video is timed at 7:47. Once you are there, you can click to vote on my video. You may vote once each day until next Friday. Thanks again!

    Thanks Bitty and fragoletta

    I just found out that you do not even need to have a youtube account to vote in this competition. If you have an account, then you can use that to vote, but for those of you that might not have an account, you can still participate.

    I just got clarification on the rules and any additional votes you try to submit for my video within each day will be void. I just wanted to let you know
