Eric Whitacre's Virtual Orchestra

In an invigorating display of the connective powers of the internet American composer Eric Whitacre assembled a virtual orchestra, over 2000 voices strong, to perform his eight-part composition. Singers from around the world (including Lebanon, Kazakhstan, and Madagascar) uploaded videos of themselves performing their respective portions of Whitacre’s composition. The audio from every participating vocalist was mixed onto a single track and the following masterpiece was created.

“The choir is a beautiful, poetic expression of a seemingly fundamental human need to connect with each other and to commune." -Whitaker
