Virtual Choir Combines Over 2000 Voices From Around The Globe Into A Performance

In September 2010, modern composer and conductor Eric Whitacre invited fans to record their individual performances of his piece and upload them to YouTube.

Almost two years later Eric has finished editing and mixing all the performance submissions into a piece which is now the world’s largest online choir. Virtual Choir 2.0 Features 2052 vocal performances from 58 countries.

The Virtual Choir began in May 2009 as a simple experiment in social media, when Britlin Losee – a fan of Eric’s music – recorded a video of herself singing “Sleep” and shared it on YouTube.

After watching the video, Eric responded by sending a call out to his online fans to purchase Polyphony’s recording of “Sleep”, record themselves singing along to it, and upload the result.

Check out the final piece and Eric’s recent talk at TED about how he came about doing this project of connecting voices around the world.
