Conduct Us

(YouTube link)

Improv Everywhere gave passersby a chance to conduct a symphony orchestra.

For our latest mission, we put a Carnegie Hall orchestra in the middle of New York City and placed an empty podium in front of the musicians with a sign that read, “Conduct Us.” Random New Yorkers who accepted the challenge were given the opportunity to conduct this world-class orchestra. The orchestra responded to the conductors, altering their tempo and performance accordingly. This project was a collaboration with Carnegie Hall and Ensemble ACJW.

A good time was had by all. For more on this caper, see the blog post about it. Link  -via Tastefully Offensive
