Concerning Matthew Shepard
Approaching the eve of the 20th anniversary of Matthew Sheppard’s death, Craig Hella Johnson has created the concert-length work Considering Matthew Shepard. This three-part fusion oratorio speaks with a fresh and bold voice, incorporating a variety of musical styles seamlessly woven into a unified whole. Johnson sets a wide range of poetic and soulful texts by poets including Hildegard of Bingen, Lesléa Newman, Michael Dennis Browne and Rumi. Passages from Shepard’s personal journal, interviews and writings from his parents, Judy and Dennis Shepard, newspaper reports and additional texts by Johnson and Browne are poignantly appointed throughout the work.
7:30 PM, Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts
