Eric Whitacre starts “Teacher of the Week” campaign — a weekly spotlight on an inspirational educator. Says Whitacre, “Not only am I lucky enough to have crossed paths with inspirational teachers throughout my life but many of you share your stories of incredible people you’ve had the joy of encountering – people who are changing the world one student at a time. Every Thursday, I will share a new “Teacher of the Week” and at any point, you can submit your own nominations.”
VC5 will take part in a performance of Deep Field, Eric’s work for symphony orchestra, chorus and electronica, inspired by one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time – the Deep Field images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. Their discovery is a tale of human aspiration, endeavor, wonder and extraordinary scientific vision.
