Eric Whitacre, who grew up in Nevada with no formal music training before college, exploded onto the choral music scene in the new millennium with the release of his internationally acclaimed album Cloudburst. As a pioneer who embraced the artistic potential of social media, Whitacre has created a phenomenon with his Virtual Choir series, layering audio from thousands of singers around the world into ecstatic online choral performances. Arvo Pärt, raised in Estonia behind the Soviet Iron Curtain, developed his own pure musical style; a reflective, chant-like approach to composition he calls “tintinnabuli,” more popularly referred to as “mystic minimalism.” What do they share in common? A sensuous love of the human voice and a boundless gift of harmonic imagination!
