Conspirare offers a variety of opportunities for individuals and corporations to join its musical circle through gifts of time, energy, and talent.
Concert ambassadors serve as ticket takers, ushers, and CD sellers at performances. Office volunteers work at Conspirare headquarters on special projects such as music library upkeep, archiving press clippings, and yes, stuffing envelopes. Hosting volunteers house out-of-town Conspirare singers and instrumentalists during concert series.
In October of 2018, Conspirare launched its first ever Corporate Ambassador program. Says Henry Leighton, President of CAS Consulting and Services, Inc., “CAS is so appreciative of the new Conspirare opportunity of being ‘Corporate Ambassadors.’ CAS covered the Big Sing at the new Austin Central Library and the staff are still talking about it months later. We were given the chance to combine an important team-building need with supporting a world-class organization, while letting our stodgy ‘engineer hair’ down. It was so fun, and we’ll do it again!”
Volunteer roles are assigned according to interests and skills, and training is provided as needed. Send us an email to find out how you can be a part of the circle of Conspirare.

Virginia Hyde and Rod Howard
We have been computer programmers for about 45 years. We worked in Silicon Valley (south of San Francisco) for 25 of those years, in various locations as we traveled around the country in an RV for 10 others, and the most recent 10 years here in Austin. The two activities that we enjoy the most are volunteering with different organizations and travelling. We have been part of the Conspirare Family since 2011, and have enjoyed every minute of it. Every interaction with Conspirare is extremely positive and very rewarding. We feel privileged to be involved with such a marvelous organization!
Other organizations that we enjoy volunteering with are Zach Theatre, Austin Chamber Music Center, Austin Classical Guitar, La Follia, and Keep Austin Beautiful. We love helping out all of these marvelous organizations!
The rest of our free time is spent travelling whenever possible. We had the chance to see most of the United States during our full time RV’ing years. Now that we have ‘hung up the RV keys’ we have had the chance to explore places that would be difficult to drive to, such as Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Spain, England, and France. We are currently planning a three week adventure in Germany and Austria, two places that we have always dreamed of visiting.
