Conspiracy of Venus sing

Conspiracy of Venus is an all women’s a cappella vocal ensemble based in San Francisco, California. Under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride, the women of CoV interpret her daring and inventive arrangements of contemporary music, ranging from the classic (Joni Mitchell’s "Big Yellow Taxi"), to the cutting edge (Bjork’s "Possibly Maybe"), with dazzling technical verve and tons of personality. The group’s repertoire also includes works by David Bowie, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The Pixies, Bill Withers, Rufus Wainwright, and Roger Miller.
