Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir 3 will go live this weekend on video sites across the internet.
An online video premiere will also take place, presented by Eric Whitacre himself, on Monday April 2nd.
The online collaborative performance saw 3746 singers from 73 different countries around the world upload parts to the composer’s choral piece, Water Night, a number that dwarfs Whitacre’s previous Virtual Choirs, which totalled 182 and 2052 singers for Virtual Choir 1 and 2 respectively.
