This reunion, the outreach committee is organizing a video project centered around a “virtual choir”: Spizzwinks of all ages, as well as groups that we’ve sung with in the past through our outreach efforts, will record videos of themselves singing the same Spizzwink arrangement – for instance, Somewhere. The videos will be recorded in different places and at different times, but at the end of this process, we’ll be able to splice dozens of submissions into an extraordinary audio and visual collage of singers from all around the world – all those who have been moved by the Spizzwinks’ music.
In the link below, you can see an example of a virtual choir organized by the choral conductor Eric Whiteacre. Our project will feature something similar – all those who have been touched by the Spizzwinks music, brought together by song. We’re partnering with one of the same producers who created the virtual choir video below, so the results should be just as amazing.
The more participation we get in this effort, the more powerful the final product will be. We’ll be sending out instructions later with more information about how to be part of the virtual choir – stay tuned. With any questions, please contact Dan Turcza ’11+1 at [email protected].
