The Theory of Relativity – Virtual Choir

Role: Technical Coordinator

The Theory of Relativity was commissioned by the Canadian Music Theatre Project (of “Come From Away” fame). A special re-mounting of the musical was planned for the 9th Song, Stage and Screen conference, and as a way of celebrating the way the whole piece is a collection of different stories, it was decided a “Virtual Choir” would be incorporated into its finale. Made famous by Eric Whitacre, the concept is simple: many voices from around the world singing on their own are mixed together to perform a song. Implementing this idea became a 4 month long endeavour that culminated in a successful performance of the virtual choir in sync with their live counterparts on stage.
