      EVENT DETAILS
      Considering Matthew Shepard

      Craig Hella Johnsons powerful masterpiece, "Considering Matthew Shepard," will change hearts and minds in only the way powerful music can. Two of the South Bays finest choral ensemblesThe Choral Project (Daniel Hughes, Artistic Director) and the San José State University Choraliers (Dr. Jeffrey Benson, Director)will come together to present a one-of-a-kind rendition of this monumental work, complete with movement & visual media, staged by Sandra Bengochea (SJSU Opera Theatre Director). In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Matthew's death, composer Craig Hella Johnson responded with his first concert-length work, "Considering Matthew Shepard," which audiences have described as brilliant, powerful, innovative, dazzling, and gripping. Jason Marsden, Executive Director of the Matthew Shepard Foundation calls the work by far the most intricate, beautiful and unyielding artistic response to this notorious anti-gay hate crime.
