Amazing Virtual Web 2.0 Choir by Eric Whitacre

Today I began searching Ted Talks for amazing lectures.  I came across this Eric Whitacre: A virtual choir 2,000 voices strong”.  It is absolutely amazing!  Breath-taking!  Please watch this…it’s a must see.  As a classically trained musician and teacher of ESL to students from around the world, I am naturally drawn to the virtual choir.  Wow!  The Ted Talks video only shares part of the final performance.  Here is the entire “Virtual Choir 2.0, ‘Sleep'” by Eric Whiteacre on YouTube.  What are your thoughts?

Virtual Choir 3 will begin mid-December 2011. It will be announced on Virtual Choir’s Twitter feed.  If you want to take part in Virtual Choir 3, follow Virtual Choir on Twitter @VirtualChoir and follow Eric Whitacre on Twitter @EricWhitacre.  You can find the music selection and details on how to take part by following Virtual Choir on Twitter.  I hope you participate.  Enjoy!

I am an educational professional who is passionate about needs analysis and materials creation to enhance student learning of all ages. I hope the content I share here will be of value to you in some way. Opinions are my own and are not those of my employer. Join me at my session for the 2013 TESOL International Conference, "ESL Instruction: Developing Your Skills to Become a Master Conductor", March 21 10:00 AM in room C144. My presentation focuses on listening, speaking and pronunciation music teaching techniques incorporated with ESL teaching. This is not your typical music/ESL presentation with chants and songs. Be prepared to use your vocal chords, diaphragm, lungs, mouth muscles, and arms like you have never used before in pronunciation, speaking and language instruction. Learn how to use music conducting skills in the language classroom to better facilitate language acquisition. Learn how to use music performance skills (vocal and instrumental) to better facilitate language learning. Be prepared to laugh and have fun. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.
