Eric Whitacre Update
A few weeks ago, I shared a post about Eric Whitacre’s spectacular Virtual Choir projects. The YouTube videos of his first few projects were vocally and visually stunning.
As a follow through to this post, I wanted to let you know that Mr. Whitacre opened up the Kickstarter for Virtual Choir 4: Bliss. In this Kickstarter, you can invest as little as $5, as Mr. Whitacre raises $100,000 for this project. There are incentives for various contributions, and Mr. Whitacre is talking about this fundraiser on his Facebook Fan Page. So far, the Kickstarter has raised almost half the funds needed to support Virtual Choir 4: Bliss since December 15. In the proposal, Mr. Whitacre outlines how the funds are used to create the final video.
For a small contribution, you can be a part of musical history by supporting the singers, musicians, and technicians who create Virtual Choir 4: Bliss. Well worth sacrificing one designer coffee, in my opinion.
