TED2013 Performance Video

The BCCM Chamber Choir sang for Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre’s final speech of TED2013, performing Cloudburst. The video is here.

Audience members included such luminaries as former Vice-President Al Gore, Actresses Goldie Hawn and Cameron Diaz, and entrepreneur Elon Musk.  This first-of-its-kind collaboration between live choir and satellite (Skype) choir follows Whitacre’s ‘virtual choir’ videos—seen by more than 4 million people around the world.

BCCM undergraduates Beth Wightwick and Jake Tickner were selected by the composer to perform the solos. Stephen Salts, graduate choral assistant, prepared the ensemble for this performance of Cloudburst.
