The local performance artists of Improv Everywhere are at it again—this time bringing pedestrian-conducted classical music to hectic midtown. For IE's latest antics, a Carnegie Hall orchestra set up in Greeley Square Park in front of an empty podium with the sign "Conduct Us." The public was invited to pick up the baton and conduct the classical ensemble, which adjusted its performance according to its random leader's movements and tempo.
