Eric Whitacre



So apparently, one of the guys I knew in high school has become an internationally known choir conductor and composer.... This is not surprising to me, as he was a very talented musician in high school, but it is always interesting to see what people do with their talents.... His latest project is what he is calling the Virtual Choir, where people are loading up a video of them singing a part in one of his compositions and then they compile them into the final piece. It's pretty interesting, check it out.

That was awesome!

Diane Sawyer was talking about this on ABC News, (I am inclined to say) several months back, when they were recording. The timing of you post was strange....!

Yeah, he published that in March or something, but he's in the middle of doing another one as a way to publicize his new CD that is coming out in November.

Sorry, late on the blog visit, but that's cool! What year did he graduate, because that name is very familiar...

Homer said...

'88..... He was our student body president.
