Conspirare presents Unclouded Day
Craig Hella Johnson will curate an eclectic and refreshing program featuring an 18-voice Conspirare ensemble singing across a broad musical spectrum. Classical, folk and popular styles and idioms will be represented in a musical journey that explores the beautiful and extraordinary ways words and music encompass the journey of women.
Also included will be a workshop performance of a newly commissioned choral work for Conspirare from composer Jocelyn Hagen based upon folk poetry by Pashtun women. Songs for Muska will include landays (2-line folk couplets) translated by Eliza Griswold (journalist and co-author of I Am the Beggar of the World) and poems by young women translated by Farzana Marie (poet and president of Civil Vision International).
