Telstra is providing free Wi-Fi at the Opera House for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra performance in Sydney.
The orchestra consists of performers sourced from all over the world through online open auditions, the first of its kind, hosted by YouTube.
Over 100 performers are flying to Sydney Opera House on March 14 and will perform at the venue on March 20.
Telstra has signed on to be a partner, providing free Wi-Fi access for performers and audiences.
“Also, audiences will be able to make calls using their Telstra Next G phones, inside the Concert Hall,” Telstra executive producer of innovation and creativity, Marque Owen, said in a statement.
“That’s because we are extending the Next G inside the Opera House, allowing coverage in the Concert Hall for the first time ever.
“We are also providing fast Internet connections for Google to demonstrate some of the wonders that they are planning for the near future."
BigPond will broadcast the concert on the BPM channel online and through T-Box.
