Putting children first: announcing Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Youth Choir
Join Eric and singers from around the world to create a special Virtual Youth Choir film to be premiered during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as part of a unique partnership with UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation. The film will be presented to a live audience and will also be simultaneously broadcast to a global TV audience.
Eric has arranged a special version of his composition ‘What If‘ for the voices of the young. Singers aged 18 and under from around the globe can learn their parts then record and submit videos to be part of our first-ever Virtual Youth Choir.
All you need is access to a computer with an internet connection, a webcam and microphone. The entire process for learning the music and submitting your video has been made as easy as possible for everyone to participate. All the information you need is right here. We even have a team of supporters online to help you.
So, tell your parents, older siblings and friends that you want to sing in Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Youth Choir, be a part of something momentous and support UNICEF. Then, if you need it, ask them to help you. Play your part, bring your voice and help make the world a better place for thousands of less fortunate children and young people around the world.
Together we can put children first and make a difference.
