Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Youth Choir!

140606_0013Big-time choral composer Eric Whitacre created the “Virtual Chorus” around five years ago. He announced to the world that if they recorded his song, those videos would be taken and combined to created a gigantic, virtual chorus.

This year, it was a YOUTH chorus. The following Folsom Students all came to learn the song with me, and MOST of us were able to get our videos recorded and sent in! (If you haven’t yet and are able to do it at home, THEY’RE DUE TOMORROW JUNE 8!)
I would like to congratulate the following students on their extra effort and musical enthusiasm!! I must also extend a HUGE thank you to Julie Moykens who came to both days of rehearsal, brought snacks, took video, and shared words of encouragement!
