Conspirare gets $1 million donation

By Jeanne Claire van Ryzin
 
AUSTIN, TX -- Five-time Grammy-nominated Austin choral group Conspirare announced Wednesday a $2.2 million major gifts campaign with a $1 million donation from the Austin-based Kodosky Foundation, the largest in Conspirare's history.

Additional gifts from Austin donors the Still Water Foundation and the Mattsson McHale Foundation have already brought the total to $1.5 million.  The new campaign, called "A Legacy of Sound," is a five-year fundraising initiative to support more recordings, commission new works and expand touring.

Founded by and under the direction of Craig Hella Johnson, Conspirare features professional singers from across the country in its chamber choir, which performs a season of concerts in Austin and elsewhere. It also maintains a volunteer symphonic choir and a children's choir.
