Event Details

Craig Hella Johnson’s masterful fusion oratorio, Considering Matthew Shepard, stands out immediately as one of the most original and innovative American works of the past several decades. Combining a remarkably broad range of musical styles, Johnson tells the heartbreaking, soul-shattering story of Matthew Shepard in powerful emotional and spiritual evocations that plumb the depths of anguish in order to seek greater understanding. Johnson has remarked that he created the work to explore a seemingly unanswerable question, “At the bottom of the suffering of this story, and among all of the suffering and death in the world, is the flame of love still present?” Join the Salt Lake Vocal Artists, soloists, instrumentalists, and audiovisual team as we explore better ways of understanding all people.
