Transcript of Eric Whitacre

Eric Whitacre Eric Whitacre is an American twintieth century composer. He writes choral and symphonic music, and has a very unique style. He started playing piano early on, and he played the trumpet in his high school marching band. Before college, he had no formal music taining, but because of his interest in music he decided to major in it. He was 21 when he completed his first works, "Go, Lovely, Rose." He graduated from college at Julliard University. His works have become known world wide, because of his very special, unique, and absoultely stunning style. He uses alot of what is called cluster chords, which are a bit far out there, and extremely hard to do. But if they are done well, they are absoultly amazing. In TBC this year we are doing a couple of Eric Whitacre peaces, and we are attempting to do them well, but they are extremely hard to pull off. We take alot of time everyday working on his peace, "Sleep." This peace is very stunning, and probably one of the most far out there peaces composed. But at the same time, one of the most beautiful. His music will most likely be remember for ages, and choirs will sing his peaces with pride. But he is still in his youth, and i him sure he will stun us even more in the days to come.
