Superstar choral composer and conductor Eric Whitacre comes together with poet and lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri and The Crossing for a live event and webcast filled with music and inspiration. This hour-long session features a presentation by Whitacre about his work with the Virtual Choir, insights by Silvestri about his lyrics for Sleep, and a performance by The Crossing, the Philadelphia-based professional chamber choir known as a champion for new music. The event concludes with a performance of the Whitacre/Silvestri collaborations Sleep and Lux Aurumque. Sleep features a multimedia presentation of the art of Anne Horjus as seen in the children’s book based on this choral classic. The performance combines choirs on stage at the Kennedy Center with thousands of additional voices online; webcast technology virtually links these voices together. Part of Voices of Our Nation: Celebrating the Choral Tradition.
