Dear Conspirare friends,
As we are at the beginning of a special year in our Conspirare story — our twentieth anniversary year — I am reminded of the gift of listening. With all of you in our listening community, I am aware of the profound gift of being able to receive music through our hearing sense. And when we allow ourselves to truly be open to hearing, we begin to hear on many levels.
Below is a link to an article which touched me. Perhaps each of us can begin this fall season with a renewed sense of how our lives are enriched and expanded because of the music we hear. Let’s all listen this year as if we are hearing for the first time.

I can’t wait to see you at our upcoming Big Sing and Signature Conspirare concerts this month (September 6 and September 27-30).
I dedicate this little blog to two extraordinary people in the Conspirare circle, Robert and Lara Harlan, who beautifully teach me every day about how to listen to the world.
