Mandala Monday and Music-Free Mandala to Color and Conspirare performing “Let The River Run”

Today I have both a mandala for you to color as well as an uplifting arrangement of “Let The River Run” by Carly Simon (arrangement by Craig Hella Johnson) and sung by the world renown choir, Conspirare.

First the mandala:

According to Youtube this is: “Conspirare performance of “Let the River Run” by Carly Simon (arrangement by Craig Hella Johnson) from the PBS special “A Company of Voices: Conspirare in Concert,” a production of KLRU-TV in association with Conspirare. Conductor, Craig Hella Johnson. Recorded live at Dell Hall, Long Center for the Performing Arts, Austin, TX, October 2008. Available on DVD and Grammy®-nominated CD (Harmonia Mundi) at”

I have the great good fortune to know Craig Hella Johnson and, as someone trained as a choral director, can honestly say he is a genius at arranging choral music and a world class choral conductor. I hope you explore more of Conspirare’s music on Youtube at:

TED Talk Thursday – TEDxAustin – Craig Hella Johnson

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery of them from

“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”

This week’s talk is from someone I happen to know, Craig Hella Johnson, who spoke recently at TEDxAustin. In this hybrid talk and performance, Craig, director of the multi-Grammy-winning choir, Conspirare, invites us to reconnect with what makes us sing and rediscover what is beyond measure within each of us.
