Composer and conductor Eric Whitacre is not just a modern day choral composer. He's harnessing the power of the internet to create breathtaking creations of his music. Last year he created a "virtual choir" with nearly two hundred singers (including our own David Rutherford's daughter). Each singer sent Whitacre a video of him or her singing his gorgeous "Lux Aurumque". Whitacre stiched these videos together for a stunning virtual choir. See this remarkable video here.
