It turns out all you need to play in the storied Sydney Opera House is a YouTube account and a touch of talent.

The YouTube Symphony Orchestra is a crowdsourced classical orchestra enjoying its second year.

The musicians then met for the first time in New York, rehearsed, performed at Carnegie Hall, and then were off to the Sydney Opera House. Learn more by watching these videos:
