Sunshine Cathedral Center for the Performing Arts in partnership with the Master Chorale of South Flordia presents Considering Matthew Shepard
Considering Matthew Shepard By Craig Hella Johnson
Brett Karlin, Conductor
This fresh, emotional oratorio honors the life and legacy of Matthew Shepard, who was the victim of one of America’s most notorious anti-LGBTQ+ hate crimes. The work incorporates Matt’s words, interviews with his parents, newspaper accounts of his murder, and soul-rending poems into a piece called “powerfully cathartic” and “a deeply moving experience.”
As this season’s “Concert for a Cause,” a portion of proceeds from these concerts will be shared with SunServe, a local organization providing critical life assistance and mental health services to the most vulnerable members of South Florida’s LGBTQ+ community.
