Conspiracy of Venus

Conspiracy of Venus is a 30-woman vocal ensemble based in San Francisco that explores the creative frontiers of music under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride. The choir sings jazz inspired a cappella arrangements of the songs and poems of David Bowie, Tom Waits, Bjork, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Bertolt Brecht, and more, as well as original compositions by McBride.

Alaskan songwriter Michael Howard’s award winning songwriting and a voice akin to Cat Stevens will pair with Caroline Cotter and her “evocative, eclectic, New England Americana” and captivating soprano vocals for this special event at Awaken Cafe.
