Virtual Choir 2.0

I recently participated in Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir 2.0, performing his composition Sleep. What an experience! 1752 singers submitted videos from 58 countries, something that has never been done before. There’s something extraordinary about singing with hundreds of people, particularly ones you are complete strangers with. It fills me hope and delight when people are willing to unite from across such distances–music has a funny way of bringing us together, doesn’t it?

It does take a few takes to get your video just right, but seeing the final result is incredibly gratifying. I am definitely looking forward to joining the next round, and would recommend it to anyone with a passion for singing.
