The Virtual Choir is a global phenomenon, creating a user-generated choir that brings together singers from around the world and their love of music in a new way through the use of technology. Singers record and upload their videos from locations all over the world. Each one of the videos is then synchronised and combined into one single performance to create the Virtual Choir.
Eric Whitacre is one of the best-loved composers and directors active today. His pieces are sung and played around the world by thousands of choirs and instrumental ensembles, and his innovative Virtual Choir productions have been viewed over 15 million times. Pepper sat down with Whitacre to discuss his journey from young choir student in Nevada to world-renowned musician. Please enjoy our interview with this giant of the music world.
