Conspirare

A Company of Voices
Current SingersAudition

Conspirare is a GRAMMY® -winning choir that provides transformational musical experiences that have a deep impact on people in Central Texas and around the world. Through live performances, recordings, concert videos, and music education, we tell stories and shape our culture.

Our professional choir is comprised of accomplished musicians from around the country selected to come together to rehearse, perform, and record. Conspirare collaborates with a variety of other musicians and groups to expand our reach, most recently with the Miró Quartet and Isaac Cates’s choir Ordained. Conspirare’s performing season includes concerts in mid-size venues, community singing events, and our iconic Christmas concert at the Long Center which tours to other Texas cities.

Recognition & Awards

  • GRAMMY® Award for Best Choral Performance for The Sacred Spirit of Russia
  • Edison Award (Dutch equivalent of Grammys) for Requiem (Harmonia Mundi’s 2009 re-release), 2010.
  • GRAMMY® Nomination for Best Classical Crossover, “A Company of Voices: Conspirare in Concert” (PBS television special), 2009.

Founder Craig Hella Johnson chose the name “Conspirare” which translates from Latin as “to breathe together.” Conspirare quickly established its reputation for “expanding the boundaries of choral performance” (Wall Street Journal).

Conspirare’s commitment to new music and diverse programming is evident from our first recording, Through the Green Fuse (2004), which features a Gaelic hymn, African American spirituals, and works by Sibelius, Stephen Foster, and Eric Whitacre, among others.

Conspirare has performed throughout the U.S., including appearances as a featured choir at the American Choral Directors Association annual conference and regional ACDA conventions.

By commissioning new choral works by living composers, Conspirare aims to create great choral masterpieces for the future, while helping all voices to be heard. Believing that music can hold everything, Conspirare sings of joy, love, praise, and the painful separation caused by racial injustice, gun violence, and climate crisis.
