Doc ‘The Choir and Conductor’ Due for Digital Purchase and VOD April 12 From Virgil

The documentary The Choir and Conductor will be released for digital purchase and VOD April 12 from Virgil Films.

Musician Billie Eilish, who has a brief appearance in the film as an alumna of the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, learned to sing starting at age 8 when she, like thousands of choristers, was electrified by its charismatic conductor Anne Tomlinson, who uses the power of choral singing to profoundly shape and impact the lives of hundreds of children.  In addition to Eilish, composers  such as John Williams, Gustavo Dudamel, John Mayer, Peter Sellars, and others have performed with the choir known as the LACC.

The film, which chronicles the story of the LACC, is a celebration of music and the arts. According to a report issued by Chorus America “more than 1 in 5 households have at least one singing family member, making choral singing the most popular form of participation in the performing arts for both adults and children.”
