Experience the joy of singing together with Conspirare's inagural Big Sing at Home, where the audience is the choir! Awaken your senses and feel inspired as we come together from our homes. For this special "Sing at Home" version, Conspirare Symphonic Choir will continue to serve as hosts and will also welcome singers from the national roster - including guitarist Mitch Watkins and percussionist Thomas Burritt. Craig Hella Johnson will lead the singing from the piano and has included nine songs that evoke feelings of this time. Lyrics will be on-screen and you can converse in real-time with the artists in the chat feature.
Big Sing songs include spirituals, beloved patriotic anthems, pop songs, and standards from the Great American Songbook. Singers of all experience levels are welcome and no singing is required. This event will only be offered once and will not be available for future streams.

The Conspirare Symphonic Choir, established in 2000, is an auditioned chorus of both professional and volunteer singers. Most reside in the Austin area, though several commute to rehearsals and performances from as far away as the Hill Country, San Antonio, and Victoria. All are highly skilled singers with significant previous choral experience.
Led by Artistic Director Craig Hella Johnson, the ensemble carries on the great oratorio tradition of epic choral storytelling. The dedicated Symphonic Choir singers are collaborative artists who sing the greatest choral masterworks with orchestra as well as new works for voices and instruments. They participate regularly in Conspirare outreach programs and serve as singing hosts for Conspirare’s popular Big Sings. Symphonic choral forces range from 50 to over 100 singers depending on the work performed.
