Global Virtual Choirs
People from All Around the World Join Eric Whitacre to Make Music as One

By: Simal Yilmaz (Star) Jan 21, 13

Created by hundreds, this new project features individual artist performances uploaded in video form and edited to create a unified Virtual Choir. The performers all sing from their homes and bedrooms and upload their videos. These are then edited by video technicians and started all at once to create this audio and visual feast.

The second Virtual Choir (VC2) had been presented at TED. The next in the series, aptly titled VC3, had an amazing 3,746 videos from 73 different countries. The Virtual Choir 4 is now being invited to perform at Coronation Concerts in July at Buckingham Palace. Eric Whitacre, the creator of this project, is funding VC4 on Kickstarter to be able to do so.

The idea behind the project is simple, but an epic demonstration of the lengths people can take when creatively making use of technology.
