When I think of who/what inspires me, my mind turns quickly to my wonderful colleagues on the Conspirare staff. I am asked frequently by good folks around the country how this thing called Conspirare is possible… It certainly takes a village — audience members, generous patrons, singers and instrumentalists, volunteers, an outstanding board of directors and many friends along the way. But at the core of what makes Conspirare special is a group of talented, bright, dedicated and delightful people who bring their distinctive gifts and experience and who work unceasingly and passionately to bring transformative musical experiences into our world. The Conspirare staff — they are under-sung heroes, but this season I want to sing their praises in a big and loud way. I love them and the work they do is inspired and inspirational.
Next time you see one of them, sing them a little song of praise for all they do to make Conspirare what it is!!
On behalf of my great colleague Ann Hume Wilson and myself, wishing all of you fine Conspirare friends the Happiest of Holidays…
With much gratitude,
