Conspirare gets $1 million donation

Five-time Grammy-nominated Austin, Texas 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. It's good to know that in these tough times there is still money to be found to support the arts. Kudos to Conspirare's fund-raisers and be inspired everybody else!
