We are proud to be hosting Spire Chamber Ensemble performing “Considering Matthew Shepard” by Craig Hella Johnson on October 6 and 7, 2023. This performance is in honor of the 25th anniversary of one of America’s most notorious anti-gay hate crimes. This dramatic Fusion Oratorio depicts the story of Matt, a 21-year-old gay student at the University of Wyoming who was kidnapped, beaten, and left to die on October 6, 1998. The music takes us on a journey of Matt’s story with music ranging from Bach to musical theatre, from country to soul, inviting us to come together as a community and to expand our care and empathy for one another, no matter our differences. Tickets are $25 per person. Save $5 per ticket with coupon code CMS2023.
