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!
