A Powerful Musical Response to Tragedy
In October of 1998, Matthew Shepard, a young gay student at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die in a lonely field under a blanket of stars. Five days later, when Matt passed away, the world was watching. Approaching the eve of the 20th anniversary, acclaimed Grammy-winning conductor Craig Hella Johnson has created a musical response to Shepard's tragic and untimely death that seeks to both celebrate his life and explore how we can use tragedy as a means to discover our common humanity. Led on the piano by Johnson, this choral drama features the full 30-member Grammy-winning Conspirare choir, a small instrumental ensemble and projected imagery. Experience this stunning work at Hollywood's Ford Theatres.
