Master Chorale of Tampa Bay Commissioned TED Presenter Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque

Eric Whitacre presented at TED in 2010 to talk about the challenges of conducting a virtual chorus of individuals from around the world. The piece, channeling the power of the human voice, is hauntingly beautiful.  In fact, fans who watch the video are often moved to tears. As it turns out, there is a Tampa connection to the very piece highlighted in Eric’s TED Talk.  In 2000, The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay commissioned Eric to write the piece Lux Aurumque. In fact, fans can purchase the CD containing the Master Chorale’s performance of the song on the Master Chorale website.

Founded in 1979, the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay is committed to advancing the art of choral music by performing great works of the past, commissioning and performing new literature and sharing the joy and power of choral music with new and existing audiences and singers.
