Program and Description


BUY TICKETS

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. This transcendent work leads us to "a higher understanding of the human condition, enabling us to endure" (The Washington Post).

Conductor and Composer Craig Hella Johnson will host a post-concert talk-back in the auditorium following the performance.
