Considering Matthew Shepard



Columbia College Department of Visual Arts and Music, in collaboration with The Quorus, Columbia’s LGBTQAA-Z Community Choir present Craig Hella Johnson’s Considering Matthew Shepard.

In October of 1998, Matthew Shepard, a young, gay student at the University of Wyoming in Laramie was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die in a lonely field under a blanket of stars. Five days later, when Matt passed away, the world was watching. Approaching the eve of the 20th anniversary, Craig Hella Johnson has responded with his first concert-length work, Considering Matthew Shepard.

Featuring The Jane Froman Singers of Columbia College, The Quorus: Columbia’s lgbtqqa-z Community Choir, as well as community soloists and instrumentalists.
