Ten years ago we created the Virtual Choir with a simple question: is it possible to make beautiful music together, no matter how far apart we are? After multiple virtual choir projects featuring over 20,000 singers from 124 different countries, the answer is a resounding yes.

For Virtual Choir 6, we continued with a new piece I wrote especially for the Virtual Choir during the pandemic, “Sing Gently”.

Submissions for Virtual Choir 6 closed on May 22, 2020.

  • 17572 singers
  • 129 countries
  • 41820 signups

We’ll be announcing the date of the premiere of the film soon. Check back here for more information.

It’s amazing to think that the Virtual Choir started as a simple experiment some ten years ago. We have all known its special purpose over that decade – joining people from around the world through music – and it has brought us particular comfort this year. That said, we all look forward to the day when we can safely make music together, in person.
