Be a part of Eric Whitacre's world-wide Virtual Youth Choir!!

Several years ago, renowned choral composer Eric Whitacre came up with the idea to "gather" people from all around the world to sing "together" using the power of technology.  He called it the Virtual Choir.  See him describe the basic concept here:

Since 2010, they have managed to do 4 different virtual choirs, and the most recent one (Virtual Choir 4), completed in July 2013, involved 5905 different singers from 101 different countries around the world!!  Wow!  See that video here:

Virtual Choir 3, from April 2012 and including 3746 different videos from 73 different countries, is equally impressive:


Eric's next virtual choir is for YOUTH ONLY - under age 18.  Very cool!  If you'd like to be a part of his first Virtual Youth Choir, visit the link below to find all the information you need to participate.  It doesn't cost anything!!  Here's what he has to say about it:

All of your questions should be answered on the "Get Started" page (with a Frequently Asked Questions section).
If you want to start learning the song right away, head over to the "Learn the Song" page.
What a great opportunity for all of us!  Be a part of this!  SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY MIDNIGHT OF JUNE 8, SO ACT NOW!
