Episode 39: The Birth and Maturation of the Virtual Choir with Eric Whitacre

Advertisements

Eric Whitacre may be the father of the virtual choir. But could he have ever envisioned what it would become?

In this episode, I have the honor of speaking with the FATHER of the virtual choir. Eric Whitacre. We discuss the origins of his virtual choir “franchise” and his thoughts on watching that concept evolve during the pandemic. I really appreciated his openness in discussing his “behind the memes” persona, as well as the philosophy behind the virtual choir and its community based ecosystem.

“I am ACHING to make music again. I never realized it was my oxygen. Lot’s of people feel this way. When we come out of this, we will enter a golden era of singing. People will cherish and make time for it like we’ve never seen before.”

Eric Whitacre
