What is a Virtual Choir?
All I need to say is that if you have the slightest interest in choir music you MUST watch this nearly 15 minute TED Talk presentation by composer/conductor Eric Whitacre that explains and then performs wonderful choir music by combining prerecorded individual parts from all over the world – a Virtual Choir -in an awesome video and audio presentation.

He went from farm boy to aspiring choral musician and his life was forever changed.
He has a website that gives more information about his work at:
