Eric Whitacre, Blow-Me-Away AMAZING

I had not intended to write a blog post today. Ton of things I should be doing instead. But my morning email brought me the RSS feed from MelissaManleyStudios and her post set my post in motion. Melissa shares with us a video about Music Composer and Conductor, Eric Whitacre, where he explains how he gathered singers from all over the world and conducted two moving pieces from his original works.

Talking about inspiration this month, Eric’s teenage dreams about playing in a POP band and then how the impact of a single profound moment revealed the eventual path of his life’s work, encourages me to listen to the whisperings that I often ignore. Those whisperings are telling me to sit up! Pay attention!

Bah, not sure my words can do it justice. Suffice to say that watching this video was amazing and moving and well worth the 14:35.
