Conspirare Christmas Brings Eclectic Mix To San Antonio


Craig Hella Johnson returns with Company of Voices to Laurel Heights

Craig Hella Johnson adds new flavor to Conspirare’s annual collage of music and poetry,  mixed to "contemplate and celebrate," with music such as Felix Mendelssohn to Mos Def, and Leonard Bernstein to Leonard Cohen! Favorites from Richard Rogers and Eric Whitacre are also on tap.

You’ll be treated by the Company of Voices featured artists: Charles Wesley Evans, baritone; Kathlene Ritch, soprano; Tom Burritt, percussion; and Adah Toland Jones, flute.

Craig Hella Johnson will lead the forces and be at the keyboard ("and might also sing a few bars!"). 

Their San Antonio performance is at 7 p.m on Friday, December 7. Additional shows will be performed in Austin and Victoria.

John Clare is comfortable behind a microphone, streaming video or playing violin. A former broadcaster for NPR, John has previously worked with Voice of America, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation and stations in Kansas, Nevada, California, and Pennsylvania.
