Conduct Us! from Improv Everywhere

When I saw this video I couldn’t help but smile as a feeling of joy settled over me… I knew I had to share it with you!

Improv Everywhere is a New York City-based prank collective that causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 100 missions involving tens of thousands of undercover agents.

For their latest mission, they 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.

  • Loved it! Only one thing missing, though……where were all the left-handed conductors out there??? Wish I could have been out there so I could have used my southpaw skills (such as they are). :-)

  • That was hilarious. Thanks for the fun :)
