Send Jim Moffat to Carnegie Hall!

Jim Moffat and I go back a long long way - back to the Lotus European cc:Mail user group, which he helped facilitate as the Lotus Marketing Manager in the UK. (Thats when they had a marketing manager in the UK - a long long time ago). Anywhoo, Jim has been playing his French Horn a bit, and is trying to get into this YouTube orchestra. And knowing Jim (and how hard he's worked on this), I beg your forgiveness and ask you to vote for him. Every day


The YouTube Symphony Orchestra is the world's first online collaborative orchestra. In January, around a thousand people worldwide participated by submitting two required audition videos to YouTube and now it is down to a week long public vote of the final two hundred. Jim Moffat has been selected as one of nine French horn players to be put before the public vote. The winners, eighty people, including just four horn players, will be flown to NY to play in Carnegie Hall in April under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas
