The greatest American composers ever, all assembled in one handy gallery! Get to know Glass, Bernstein, Whitacre, Gershwin and all the rest.
One of America’s most recognisable, and most successful contemporary composers, Nevada-born Eric Whitacre has become a household name across the globe. A versatile musician, he’s written for the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Julian Lloyd Webber, the Philharmonia Orchestra and composed film scores; his musical, Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings, has won a host of awards while his record, Cloudburst, was an international best-seller and even earned him a Grammy. But perhaps his most exciting project is his Virtual Choir that brings together people from around the world to sing in a truly global performance via YouTube.
