       think of it like a pipe organ except instead of pipes, it's an app on everyone's cell phones

       If everyone downloaded an appropriate ringtone, then tunes on their collective phones could be played from a large call-centre. I imagine the conductor in penguin suit with baton standing on a podium facing ranks of cubicles occupied by the call centre staff. Meanwhile outside on the streets, the dulcet tones of Beethoven's 73rd waft through the streets.

       See MoPhO link. They did at least some audience participation concerts. Don’t know if MoPhO is still around, all of their related links I’m finding are pretty old. But there are many other examples online of the same idea.   

       … so sure, it sounds like fun, but this is a bone for not checking if it had done it before.
