They had just arrived from all the corners of the world on Sunday but there has been no time for sightseeing.

Grammy Award winning musical director Michael Tilson-Thomas had them straight to work.

Insert

There are some really phenomenally energetic and excellent players. And it’s been really interesting too how people are finding one another. At first there was a certain kind of tentativeness of where we are playing and exactly what are we doing, but it’s coming together very very quickly.

The 90 musicians have come to New York from as far away as Australia and South Korea - all for the chance to play at Carnegie Hall.

Over 3000 posted audition videos then 200 finalists were selected before YouTube viewers voted for the winners. Some have never left their home countries before let alone played in such a high profile venue.

They will perform an extensive programme which includes a specially written piece called Internet Symphony number 1 'Eroica'.
