Creating a Virtual Choir with as Many Singers as the Cells in Your Body. Ok, Maybe Not That Much

You're probably thinking about how it's possible to make a virtual choir, right? And that too with 17,572 singers. Well, Eric has got your back! In 2009, way before the pandemic, Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre figured out how to build a choir without having the singers in one place: "This idea came up which was pretty simple: I would upload a video of myself conducting the piece. And then people sat alone in their rooms and followed my conductor's track, and sang along to it. If I uploaded all of those videos and I started them at the same time, this choir would have to emerge, a virtual choir." #relax
