Description

Considering Matthew Shepard
Craig Hella Johnson,
composer and conductor

conspirare.org

Craig Hella Johnson conducts the Grammy Award-winning ensemble Conspirare in a riveting performance of Considering Matthew Shepard, his musical response to the tragic death of a young gay man who has become an American symbol for hope and empowerment. This major new work for chorus, soloists and chamber ensemble sets to music a rich variety of texts by librettist Michael Dennis Browne and poets Lesléa Newman, Rumi and many others, leading listeners from anguish to understanding.

“A brilliant, heartfelt performance… Powerfully cathartic, it leads us from horror and grief to a higher understanding of the human condition, enabling us to endure.”
— Patrick Rucker, The Washington Post
