Event Details

Grammy Award-winner Eric Whitacre is featured in a free lecture at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, in UCLA's Schoenberg Hall, hosted by the Choral Excellence Association and the Herb Alpert School of Music. 

The lecture, "Questions, Answers, and Conversation," is free, but requires a ticket due to very limited seating. 

Whitacre is one of the most popular and performed composers of our time, a distinguished conductor, broadcaster, and public speaker. His first album Light & Gold won a Grammy in 2012, reaped unanimous five star reviews, and became the no. 1 classical album in the U.S. and United Kingdom charts within a week of release.

His ground breaking Virtual Choir, Lux Aurumque received over 1 million views on YouTube in just 2 months (now 4 million). The latest, Virtual Choir 4: Fly to Paradise,released in July 2013, received over 8,400 submissions from 101 countries and launched at the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace/BBC 1.

Eric has written for The Tallis Scholars, BBC Proms, London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Chanticleer, Julian Lloyd Webber and the Philharmonia Orchestra, Berlin Rundfunkchor and The King’s Singers among others. An exceptional orator, Eric was honored to address the U.N. Leaders program and the revered TED conference in Long Beach, CA. Eric addressed the World Economic Forum, Davos in January 2013, leading a discussion on the role of arts in society and the impact of technology on the arts, and will return to Davos by invitation in 2014. In March 2013, he presented the first ‘live’ Virtual Choir at TED (Long Beach, CA) performing ‘Cloudburst’.

Whitacre is currently Composer-in-Residence at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University, UK.
