    YouTube Symphony Orchestra. Bet you never thought you'd read those words in the same sentence.

    COME TOGETHER: For the YouTube Symphony Orchestra project, one composer invited users to submit footage of them playing their instrument. Three thousand submissions later, the 90 selected musicians sneak-preview at (Le) Poisson Rouge tonight the piece they'll be playing at Carnegie Hall tomorrow. 9:30PM.

    WORKING BLUE: Tonight kicks off a six-night run at Birdland of the Blue Note Records 70th Anniversary Tour, an all-star lineup of jazz musicians (e.g. Nicholas Payton, Ravi Coltrane) playing tribute to the legendary Blue Note label before they take off on a nationwide tour. 8:30, 11PM.

    WILD OATES: The wildly prolific Joyce Carol Oates will be at the Lincoln Center Barnes & Noble reading from and signing copies of Dear Husband, a collection of short stories she just released. After which she'll probably go back to her hotel, order room service, and bang out a couple more bestsellers before hitting the hay. 7:30PM.
