This transcendent work leads us to "a higher understanding of the human condition, enabling us to endure" (The Washington Post).
Matthew Shepard, the victim of one of the worst anti-gay hate crimes in history, has inspired this oratorio by Grammy-winning conductor and composer Craig Hella Johnson. He conducts from the piano, incorporating a variety of musical styles with Matthew Shepard's journal entries and other poignant texts.
Conductor and Composer Craig Hella Johnson will host a post-concert talk-back in the auditorium following the performance.
