Conspirare presents Conspirare Christmas featuring Carrie Rodriguez, December 11 in Dell Hall.
Savor, share and explore the meaning of the holidays with Conspirare Christmas!
Grammy® award-winning Conspirare delivers world-class vocal artistry in this celebration of love, connection and renewal. Please join us for an evening that will feed your soul and open your heart. Craig Hella Johnson’s unique programming breaks down the conventional boundaries of pop, classical, folk and season favorites, revealing the music’s essence and embracing our shared humanity. Collaborating on this year’s concert is Austin’s own Carrie Rodriguez.
Carrie Rodriguez, a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas, finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions. A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude. Her newest project, the Spanish/English album Lola, was counted among NPR’s top 50 Albums of 2016 and hailed by NPR Music’s Felix Contreras as the “perfect bicultural album.”
“… Conspirare Christmas – ideas, a spiritual journey, and music – people coming together to experience the joy of this magical amalgam, perhaps opening up in this time and place to a concept of unity that might well change their lives… and perhaps, for at least a moment, coming away with smiles not only on their faces, but in their hearts.” —Paul E. Robinson, La Scena musicale
