DJ Sessions: From Traditional To Virtual Choirs

For this edition of the Here & Now DJ Sessions,  Steve Staruch, a host at Classical Minnesota Public Radio, joins Jeremy Hobson to survey a range of choral music.

Staruch takes us through older classics — including one from the late Swiss composer Frank Martin — to the virtual choir created by Eric Whitacre.

Note: We have a Spotify playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions segment. The playlist is updated each week with new songs. Spotify is free to use, but requires a login.

Stephen Paulus, “The Road Home,” Sung By The Dale Warland Singers

J. Aaron McDermid, “Wind,” Sung By The National Lutheran Choir


Eric Whitacre, “Lux Arumque,” Sung By His Virtual Choir.
