    Description: We will read through the libretto. “Considering Matthew Shepherd”, a recent work by Craig Hella Johnson, is a moving, powerful, and uplifting work that explores our humanity through Matthew’s life and death, a “modern-day Passion." This musical exploration of the painful circumstances surrounding Matthew Shepard's murder help us to overcome hate and bigotry around us and within ourselves. The music is eclectic in style with solo and small ensemble opportunities throughout. To learn more about
