Audience Quotes

After our first collaboration with Isaac Cates & Ordained, we asked listeners what they would tell a friend about Conspirare Christmas. Here is what they shared:

I delight in introducing new friends to Conspirare, and they are always blown away by the performance. I will keep coming back. I hope they win more Grammys. I will continue to sing their praises & continue to bring new friends hear Conspirare.

I have never been to a better or more exciting Conspirare concert. The collaboration with Isaac Cates and Ordained was masterful. I felt like I was in the middle of an old time revival, a gospel choir and a jam session all at once. Spell binding.

That it is an extraordinary experience unlike any Christmas concert I have ever attended! Rather than a collection of extraordinary musical pieces and musicians, it is a musical journey we take together. Thank you!

You will experience something like you’ve never heard before, and that will put you in the Holiday mood, for sure.

I already tell my friends that we plan our Christmas activities around the CONSPIRARE Christmas concert. It is the best gift we give ourselves.

Enjoyable and inspiring!
