Singing across the internet

Composer Eric Whitacre is known for his lovely choral pieces that evoke a deep sense of calm and connection to the universe.

Now his work is being performed in a way that evokes a deep sense of connection… via the internet.

After seeing a video of a soprano sitting at her computer, singing along to his piece “Sleep.” Whitacre realized he could have all the parts sung by people anywhere on the earth, and create a virtual choir.

Since then, Whitacre along with producer Scott Haines, have completed two virtual choral pieces: “Sleep” and “Lux Aurumque.” You can read more about the process of putting the project together here.
