Are you ready for VC3?

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir 3 project has been launched! It's a great opportunity to join thousands of other singers from around the world in singing the same song together in one huge virtual choir.

If you joined the VC2 choir a year ago, be sure not to miss VC3 - it is even easier this time with online resources to help you sing your best, and a much improved interface for you to practice and record your voice.

The song for VC3 is Eric Whitacre's 1995 composition "Water Night":

Night with the eyes of a horse that trembles in the night,
night with eyes of water in the field asleep
is in your eyes, a horse that trembles,
is in your eyes of secret water.
Eyes of shadow-water,
eyes of well-water,
eyes of dream-water.
Silence and solitude,
two little animals moon-led,
drink in your eyes,
drink in those waters.
If you open your eyes,
night opens, doors of musk,
the secret kingdom of the water opens
flowing from the center of night.
And if you close your eyes,
a river fills you from within,
flows forward, darkens you:
night brings its wetness to beaches in your soul.


Singing teacher (and Virtual Choir member) Henny De Snoo-van Breugel has created a Vocal Technique site with lots of information and tips to help you improve your singing.
