Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir

This is stunning!

Composer and conductor Eric Whitacre used his blog, Facebook and YouTube to put a call out, assemble and audition over 200 singers for his virtual choir. He sent them all sheet music so they could each video themselves performing their individual parts and Whitacre Scottie Haines (thanks Ian) then spliced it all back together to create the truly beautiful, Lux Aurumque.

Here’s the final video.

    To be clear, Scottie Haines was the one who edited/spliced, not Eric Whitacre. Also, we were not, auditioned, per se…

    We are saddened to see that the production of “Sleep” has been removed & can not be viewed any longer. It was the very beginning of these virtual choirs & should not be forgotten. Please add it back to your web site. Scott Haines did an awesome job in the production but seems to have been forgotten. The choirs since then would not have come about without the launch of the very first one. Is there any way to contact Eric personally to make this request?
