Undergraduate EDMT student and musician Matthew Saxe brought an interesting Kickstarter project to our attention. According to virtual choirmaster Eric Whitacre:
For those of you who don’t know about the Virtual Choir, the concept is pretty simple. Singers from around the world upload their videos. They’re singing alone in their living rooms, their dorm rooms, their garages; we cut all the videos together and start them at the same time to create a Virtual Choir. Somehow it all comes together and we’re making music as one choir.

The credits at the end of this one run for almost 3 minutes. No wonder . . . it used 3746 videos from 73 different countries
