Virtual Choir 3, Water Night is the latest in Whitacre's projects bringing the world together in song. As covered by Billboard the choir was unveiled on April 2nd at an exclusive event held at Lincoln Center attended by fans, choir members and industry executives alike. With a record breaking total of over 3700 videos from nearly 3000 people in 73 countries, Virtual Choir 3 is the largest online choir ever assembled.

Whitacre writes music that incorporates contemporary sounds and influences while demanding precision, intonation and ensemble. He is probably best known for his choral works; however, both his choral and instrumental styles use his signature "Whitacre chords," or pan-diatonic clusters usually arranged in successive increasing or decreasing density. Perhaps his most famous chord is a root-position major triad with an added major second and/or perfect fourth.
