Be there when they sing for TV

The Conspirare juggernaut rolls on. After racking up two Grammy nominations, being the only U.S. choir to sing at the latest World Choral Symposium, and breaking into the Billboard Top 10 list for classical CDs, what realm is next for our exceptional vocal ensemble to conquer? Why, television, of course. Craig Hella Johnson and his company of voices are set to tape a one-hour concert that will air nationally on PBS in March 2009, and the public is invited to sit in. But to see the concert – which takes place Sunday, Oct. 12, 7pm, at the Long Center for the Performing Arts – you need a free ticket. They will be distributed two per person on a first-come, first-served basis on Tuesday, Oct. 7, noon, at KLRU-TV, 2504-B Whitis. For more information, visit
