Eric Whitacre is a unique choir director. Besides directing real choirs, he also directs virtual ones, which include people from all over the world–many of them in their own houses or apartments. In this piece, which he wrote, he blends a real time virtual choir with one on stage– never done before. It’s amazing how our ever-increasing technology touches nearly every aspect of our lives.

We believe music is a powerful tool. Certain music can be helpful to people and even help plants grow better! Not sure how Skype music fits in…but it’s pretty neat how Eric has branched out into the unknown with his world-wide choir inventions!
