Improv Everywhere set up an orchestra in Central Park and asked members of the public to conduct it!

If you ever dreamed of becoming a maestro and conducting an orchestra, last September 24 would have been your chance. Sitting in the middle of busy New York City was a Carnegie Hall Orchestra waiting to be led by an aspiring Sir Simon Rattle. Improv Everywhere, a long form improvisation troupe, organized the musicians there and then placed a sign on an empty podium that read, “Conduct Us.”

New Yorkers, young and old, answered the call. They stood on the podium and led the orchestra, soon attracting a large crowd and creating a small performance minus the auditorium walls. The different performances were captured in video.
