Big Sing! Hymns and Gospel Songs

May 3, 2018 — Austin

Raise your voice at Conspirare’s Big Sing! Craig Hella Johnson leads each Big Sing gathering in vocal warm-ups and short, melodic songs that can be easily learned. As musical hosts, Conspirare Symphonic Choir members are among the audience to sing along and provide musical support and encouragement. Song sheets are provided.

Musical selections at Big Sings range from familiar rounds, spirituals, and Beatles songs to popular 20th century standards from the Great American Songbook. Johnson hand-picks music for each Big Sing to delight, thrill, and sometimes challenge the singing audience, always with remarkably beautiful and inspirational results. The theme for this Big Sing is hymns and gospel songs.

The Big Sing is open to everyone, regardless of musical training and experience. Through a fun, no-pressure group singing experience, audience members learn basic vocal technique and sing as one with hundreds of others.

Join us at 6 p.m. on May 3rd!
