Words may not suffice here.  The average choir may be ... what?  Thirty, maybe 50 for a medium ensemble, and a large orchestra chorus might go one or two hundred.  Worthy of note, Eric Whitacre's FIRST virtual choir, which performed "Lux Aurumque, counted 185 members!  Virtual Choir 2.0 utterly smashed that record, with over 2,000 participants from over 50 countries.

This latest effort, continues to stagger the imagination:

3,746 videos
73 countries


Consider ... several thousand individuals, singing by themselves in their rooms, at their computers, yet each knowing they are going to be part of one of the most extraordinary cooperative artistic efforts the world has ever seen ... and the product?

I think the product speaks very well for itself.

Please listen.  Please enjoy.

Wow! Just wow! Saw a story on the news this morning as I was getting ready for work. Came home to find it, and it was on AN. Loren, thank you. I think I will have to investigate further and help on the next one. My only saving grace is that he uses everybody, turns no one down, lol. Again Loren, thanks. And wow!
