Summary

Today, I will be addressing a topic which is quite close to heart for me personally. It’s the genre of choral music. I’m sad to say, but most people in the US have never experienced the rich tradition and repertoire of choral music.

Eric Whitacre is a musician you simply cannot, not know about. I couldn’t possibly think of a better individual to discuss choral music because Eric Whitacre is among the world’s most well-known and highly revered choral composers. 

He is a Grammy-winning composer, a graduate of the prestigious Juilliard School of Music, is a natural and persuasive orator, and perhaps is most famously known for his Virtual Choir project, which is a global choir consisting of thousands of singers.

I was privileged to have this conversation with him and I am confident that you’ll have a completely different perspective on choral music as a result of it.
