The Virtual Choir began in May 2009 as a simple experiment in social media, when  a fan of Eric’s Whitacre (a classical componist &  conductor) recorded a video of herself singing “Sleep” and shared it on YouTube.
After watching the video, Eric responded by sending a call out to his online fans to purchase Polyphony’s recording of “Sleep”, record themselves singing along to it, and upload the result.
The combination of these voices can be seen in the Video above.

Next step: 1752 voices from 58 countries.
