Virtual Choirs & Marriage in the Movies
Friday, March 22, 2013
This week in Studio 360, we meet Eric Whitacre, the rock star of contemporary choral music, who has a secret to his success: forming choirs online. We look for marital advice from the movies, but film historian Jeanine Basinger raises a cautionary note: a marriage isn’t good drama, or funny, unless it’s in trouble. And we go for a walk with sound recordist Chris Watson as he captures the birds and reeds and church bells that inspired composer Benjamin Britten.
