Eric Whitacre’s 2015 Oxford Union Address

Eric Whitacre’s 2015 Oxford Union Address

We’re huge fans of the one and only Eric Whitacre.

Sally Goodwin, hobby singer, active virtual choir member and a dear friend of ours in Brighton (UK), suggested that we share Eric’s recent Oxford Union address in our blog.

So, we’ll let her introduce this treat:

“I was introduced to Eric’s music by a friend who had just started singing again after many years. She encouraged me to take part in Virtual Choir 2 ‘Sleep’. Since then I have taken part in VC3 and VC4 as a singer and part of the production support team for VC4 and the first Virtual Youth Choir in partnership with UNICEF.
I am inspired by Eric’s music and the evolving, inclusive nature of the Virtual Choir Project. It is fun, ground breaking, energising and interesting to take part. This talk gives a real insight into the creative life and personality of a living composer and a brief look at the Virtual Choir projects.”
