Craig Hella Johnson: The Singing Guitar
Mon, 10 May 2021

By Brian O’Donnell

Craig Hella Johnson is known for crafting musical journeys that create deep connections between performers and listeners.

Johnson is Music Director of the Cincinnati Vocal Arts Ensemble and conductor emeritus of the Victoria Bach Festival and he’s also Artistic Director of Conspirare, a grammy award winning virtuoso choir who released a beautiful project not long ago called The Singing Guitar - it’s the choir along with 3 guitar quartets - LAGQ, The Austin Guitar Quartet, and the Texas Guitar Quartet, and cello by Douglas Harvey. Johnson curated a program woven together by exquisitely crafted music for voices, guitar, and stories of women.



I recently spoke to Craig about this gorgeous project:
