Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir is back, and this time it's the musical! Whitacre, the American composer who found fame with his uplifting online choral projects--in which strangers from across the world are invited to film themselves taking part in one of his works, and upload the film to be integrated into a digital soundscape on an animated stage--has announced his new project.
This time, he's turning to a number from his musical Paradise Lost. The song is called "What If." And this time Whitacre is putting together a young people's choir. The film will receive its debut as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, as a UNICEF event.
Under 18's are invited to submit their entries for The Virtual Youth Choir via ericwhitacre.com.
