Never thought much about the possibilities of Internet choirs, but now I'm sold:

You may well have seen this, but this high school choral performance is a worthy Internet classic:

thank G-d, that in spite of everything, there is still perfect light in the world, and beautiful things... perfect last roses of summer and harmony in the ether.

A pretty piece.

Some thoughts:
1. If I'm singing in this choir, how do I know if the director's looking at me, if he's *always* looking at me? That is, how does the director direct just a section for a moment if needed (like basses, lighten up, tenors slow down, etc.)?

2. if my image is to the right of the to the blonde girl, do I hear her in my left speaker? or do I hear what everyone hears?

3. If more people can sing this way, that's good. But if you live in a community with affordable broadband service but no community choir, then are priorities aren't quite right.
