Conspirare

Listen to wonderful choral music from Conspirare.

Conspirare is a vocal ensemble known for delivering uniquely beautiful and transformative musical experiences. Their name comes from Latin (“con” + “spirare”) which means “to breathe together”. They have been been nominated for six Grammys and recently won Best Choral Performance for Sacred Spirit of Russia at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

Their web site says: “Inspired by the power of music to change lives, Conspirare engages audiences in extraordinary musical experiences through world-class choral performances and recordings.” More information about them is available at their web site.

If you have never heard them before, listen to what you have been missing. See them perform if you get the chance. We enjoy attending their concerts here in Austin every year. They are simply fantastic!

One thought on “Conspirare

  1. Amazing. I had never heard of it. I have a friends who’s part of a chorus, she’ll love it too.
