Conspirare http://tpr.org en Conspirare Presents A Choral Pilgrimage At Laurel Heights Methodist http://tpr.org/post/conspirare-presents-choral-pilgrimage-laurel-heights-methodist <p>Conspirare is a choral group that works out of Austin and a few times a year they make it to San Antonio. But calling them an Austin choral group though isn’t entirely accurate..</p><p>"Actually only a small number of the singers are here in Austin," said Artistic Director Craig Hella Johnson. "This is an ensemble of singers from around the country, really. Each of them is a soloist in their own right. They may be performing art songs, or operatically, or on Broadway, or in faculty positions, and yet come together and form a choir of soloists, in a sense."</p> Fri, 17 Jan 2014 20:20:51 +0000 Jack Morgan 25268 at http://tpr.org Conspirare Presents A Choral Pilgrimage At Laurel Heights Methodist Conspirare Brings Special Guest Ruthie Foster For Holiday Performance http://tpr.org/post/conspirare-brings-special-guest-ruthie-foster-holiday-performance <p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p>Conspirare is a professional chamber choir from Austin that sings different types of music, from medieval to modern.

"We are returning to a venue that we really enjoy singing in -- Laurel Heights United Methodist Church -- and we are singing this Friday."</p> Tue, 03 Dec 2013 18:56:08 +0000 Jack Morgan 22925 at http://tpr.org Conspirare Brings Special Guest Ruthie Foster For Holiday Performance Conspirare Christmas Brings Eclectic Mix To San Antonio http://tpr.org/post/conspirare-christmas-brings-eclectic-mix-san-antonio <p><strong>Craig Hella Johnson returns with Company of Voices to Laurel Heights</strong></p><p>Craig Hella Johnson adds new flavor to <a href="http://conspirare.org/now-singing/conspirare-christmas/" target="_blank">Conspirare</a>’s annual collage of music and poetry, &nbsp;mixed to "contemplate and celebrate," with music such as Felix Mendelssohn&nbsp;to&nbsp;Mos Def, and Leonard Bernstein to Leonard Cohen!
