Text Quotes
A really good poem is full of music  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) I can’t write music unless I’m deeply connected to it and that connection almost always comes from some experience that I have had or am having.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) There must be four or five hundred choirs here in London alone. In a way, there’s nowhere else on Earth I could go and get this level and passion for singing in the one place.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) For me, the virtual choir has taught me that, if anything, the Internet builds these post-national tribes, people finding each other anyway they can.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) Nerves, stress and the pressure to perform are a part of life. You don’t have to conquer these feelings; just learn to live with them.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) People in chorus tends to be much more emotional or at least wear their hearts on their sleeve. They are generally the kind to hold hands and cry. It’s just a different personality type.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) I wanted to be a rock star. I dreamed of it, and that’s all I dreamed of. To be more accurate, I wanted to be a pop star. This was in the late 80s. And mostly, I wanted to be the fifth member of Depeche Mode or Duran Duran.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) I’m a self-confessed geek, and my whole concept of music at first was entirely electronic. In many ways, it turned out to be an advantage. I was so green, so utterly naive about the nature of classical music, that I did things that made me look totally, deliberately unorthodox.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) Since I first fell in love with choral music when I was 18 and began composing at 21, I’ve been listening to these recordings of British choirs. I just fell in love with that sound - that pure, clean, pristine sound - and I think it’s probably been the biggest influence on my sound.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) In Las Vegas, the magnitude is impressive, but the humanity is gone. It feels like you’re being intimidated out of your money instead of inviting you to come have this experience.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) When I went to college at the University of Nevada back in Las Vegas, I got tricked into singing in choir. The first thing we did was the Mozart ‘Requiem.’ That was the piece that changed my life overnight.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) The virtual choir would never replace live music or a real choir, but the same sort of focus and intent and esprit de corps is evident in both, and at the end of the day it seems to me a genuine artistic expression.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) With vocal and choral music, first and foremost, it’s the text. Not only do I need to serve the text, but the text - when I’m doing it right - acts as the perfect ‘blueprint’, and all the architecture is there. The poet has done the heavy lifting, so my job is to find the soul of the poem and then somehow translate that into music.  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) The terror of performing never goes away. Instead, you get very, very comfortable being terrified  (Eric Whitacre Quotes) When I had my first experiences of choral singing, the dissonance of those close harmonies was so exquisite that I would giggle or I would tear up, and I felt it in a physical way  (Eric Whitacre Quotes)
