Grammy® Award-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre is one of the world’s most performed living composers. His works have been programmed worldwide by millions of amateur and professional performers, while his groundbreaking Virtual Choirs have united singers from over 120 different countries. Eric, a graduate of the prestigious Juilliard School of Music, is presently Artist in Residence with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, following five years as Composer in Residence at the University of Cambridge, UK. As conductor of the Eric Whitacre Singers, he has released such chart-topping albums including Light and Gold and Water Night. In high demand as guest conductor, he has drawn capacity audiences to concerts with the Netherlands Radio Choir, London Symphony Orchestra, Flemish Radio Choir, and Minnesota Orchestra. His creative versatility shines through collaborations with legendary Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer and British pop icons Laura Mvula, Imogen Heap and Annie Lennox, and major classical commissions for the BBC Proms, Minnesota Orchestra, Rundfunkchor Berlin, The Tallis Scholars, Chanticleer, Los Angeles Master Chorale and The King’s Singers.

A charismatic speaker, Eric Whitacre has given keynote addresses for many Fortune 500 companies and global institutions, from Apple and Google to the World Economic Forum in Davos and the United Nations Speaker’s Programme. His two mainstage talks at the hugely influential TED conference in Long Beach CA received standing ovations. Eric’s symphonic work, Deep Field, became the foundation for a pioneering audiovisual collaboration with NASA, the Space Telescope Science Institute, Music Productions and 59 Productions. First seen at Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral (Florida), the film, Deep Field – The Impossible Magnitude of our Universe, has since been seen in concert halls and music festivals around the world, at the World Science Festival and in multiple museums and planetariums.
