Conspiracy of Venus is a 30-woman vocal ensemble based in San Francisco, CA that explores the creative frontiers of music under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride. We interpret Joyce’s daring and inventive arrangements of beloved songs, ranging from popular classics (Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi and David Bowie’s Life On Mars) to edgy contemporary pieces (Bjork’s Possibly Maybe), as well as original compositions by Joyce (including a poem by Bertolt Brecht set to music) with dazzling technical verve and tons of personality. Drawing inspiration from medieval music, jazz, funk, and new music, Conspiracy of Venus takes vocal music into territories not often explored by more traditional choirs or college-style a cappella groups (though we are inspired by them too!).LEARN MORE
Helen Macdonald’s H Is for Hawk is among the most anticipated works of nonfiction this spring. Winner of the 2014 Costa Book of the Year and the 2014 Samuel Johnson Prize for Nonfiction, it is the remarkable story of one woman’s resolve to raise and train the most bloodthirsty of birds: the goshawk. But it’s also a heart-wrenching account of Macdonald’s grief at the sudden death of her father; a literary meditation on The Sword and the Stone author T.H.White—a writer who also sought to fill a void through training a goshawk; a gripping piece of nature writing that “reads like a thriller” (The Guardian) and transports both writer and reader to the edge of humanity and back.LEARN MORE
