Virtual Choir 2.0: Eric Whitacre and 2,052 singers!

If you enjoy choral music, you won’t regret spending five plus minutes listening to this lush rendition of Eric Whitacre’s “Sleep”, performed by over 2,000 singers!  As in his first virtual choir performance, Eric collected individual parts recorded via webcam from all over the world, and combined them in a single video to produce amazing choral sound.  (The video is five and 1/2 minutes, but the credits are necessarily long, with so many artists involved.)

Eric Whitacre gave a short TED talk shortly before releasing this video, where he talks about how it came about, and focuses on a few of the performers; he comes across as a very sweet person.
