Considering Matthew Shepard

03:00 pm to 05:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

On October 9 and 10, 2021, the Bloomington Chamber Singers will perform Considering Matthew Shepard, Craig Hella Johnson´s powerful reflection on the events surrounding the 1998 beating and death of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student in Wyoming. This “fusion oratorio” speaks with a fresh and bold voice, incorporating a variety of musical styles seamlessly woven into a unified whole. Gerald Sousa conducts the Bloomington Chamber Singers and soloists in this long-awaited multimedia production.

Amid deep divisions in our country and a fear of “otherness,” Considering Matthew Shepard helps listeners and musicians alike reflect on the proliferation of violence but also the healing power of acceptance, justice, and love. Listeners of diverse backgrounds, faiths, and musical tastes describe this work as “brilliant,” “powerful,” “innovative,” “dazzling,” and “gripping.”
