Singers from Conspirare Symphonic Choir and Saint John’s Chancel Choir depart for musical performances in Italy later this June as part of KIConcerts Passion of Italy Tour. Under the direction of Cina Crisara, this combined choir (“CSSJ”) has been preparing for performances that will include gala concerts in Rome, Florence and Venice under the baton of Craig Hella Johnson, Conspirare’s Artistic Director and conductor.
Saturday’s special, informal send-off concert is free and open to everyone who wants to say “Arrivederci” to the singers! CSSJ will join forces with Texas Choral Consort (conducted by Brent Baldwin) and the Houston Masterworks Chorus (conducted by Tom Jaber). Each choir will perform a few selections and then combine under the direction of Craig Hella Johnson to sing selections from the repertoire they will present in Italy. Come listen to a great sampling of the tour music while you support your Texas friends who are making this wonderful trip!
