The Company of Voices is fully engaged in preparation for our upcoming concert series, “The Sacred Spirit of Russia.” We hope that you will be able to attend one of our performances celebrating this rich and powerful choral tradition.
In order to familiarize your ears with what you’ll be hearing next week, below are links to selected performances on YouTube of repertoire Conspirare will perform. These performances are not by Conspirare but are publicly and freely available presentations by other fine ensembles. We hope that these links give you a flavor of the treat in store, and we look forward to having you join us next week, either in Fredericksburg (Thurs., January 31) or Austin (Sat.-Sun., February 1-3).
