One of the most prestigious, talented musicians paving the musical world today is the one and only Eric Whitacre. It is breath taking the sound and music that he is able to produce, and the music that he has composed is absolute gold. In today’s society, technology is continuously opening doors and new experiences, especially when it comes to music. The possibilities seem endless right now, but Whitacre never fails to test the waters and create a masterpiece that no one else ever has. Back in 2013, along with many other multiple occasions, Eric Whitacre staged a performance not only with 100 live singers, but was also joined by over 30 people from various countries around the world via Skype. Whitacre by that time had already astonished the musical world by his virtual choir that he created, which was enabled through the use of the internet. Just as music continues to evolve, technology is constantly changing, improving, and progressing to newer and better things. With that said, Eric Whitacre is one of the greatest examples of musical influencers/teachers who utilizes and combines the power of music and technology, to create something remarkable.
