What is Virtual Choir? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Multimedia and graphics glossary:

Virtual Choir (VC) is an assembly of geographically dispersed singers performing choral works, led by composer Eric Whitacre. Individual singers post videos of themselves singing their parts and technicians coordinate the audio into a single performance.

Eric Whitacre was inspired to create the Virtual Choir when Britlin Losee uploaded a video of herself singing the soprano part of his composition "Sleep." Whitacre's initial call for singers yielded 185 videos uploaded from 12 countries for the first performance of Virtual Choir, the composer's "Lux Aurumque."

VC2, "Sleep," with 2052 videos from 78 countries, was released in April 2011. Whitacre introduced the video at the 2011 TED talks.

VC3, ‘Water Night’ received 3,746 videos from 73 countries and launched on April 2, 2012 in a live event at Lincoln Center in New York City. On April 15, VC3 played in the Belfast Titanic building, commemorating the centenary of the disaster.

VC4, "Bliss," is to be presented at the Coronation Concerts in July 2013 at Buckingham Palace.
