Virtual Choir 3: Eric Whitacre’s Water Night

Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir 3 has proven yet again choral singing’s unique ability to form a bond between people the world over.  Singers from 72 countries joined the online choir in this latest marriage of music and technology.

The unveiling of the video at Lincoln Center revealed much more than just a video of choral performance.   In the accompanying discussions, you joined the conversation about music and technology between Eric and his composition mentor, Oscar-winning composer John Corigliano and Chris Anderson, founder of TED conference.  There was a wonderful synergy as student, teacher and technology guru talked about where we are and where we might be as technology and the arts develop side by side in our world.  This is very timely subject matter for the generations who absorb technology as part of their daily lives.

J.W. Pepper is a Co-Producer of Virtual Choir 3 and we are pleased to share with you these video moments:
