Music of many centuries and styles, artfully melded in Conspirare’s unique and popular holiday collage concert. Craig Hella Johnson combines classical works, carols, pop songs and more, to create an entirely unique, intensely meaningful experience. This year’s guest artists are longtime Conspirare collaborators: vivacious soprano Mela Sarajane Dailey, soulful singer-songwriter Matt Alber, and “Best of Austin” percussionist Tom Burritt.
