Considering Matthew Shepard

  • Aired: 10/17/2016

  • Rating: NR
In October of 1998, Matthew Shepard was beaten, tortured, and left to die. Craig Hella Johnson, Artistic Director of the Grammy Award-winning choral group Conspirare, places the story of Matthew Shepard into the context of a passion story and other choral traditions, bringing new depth to a harrowing story of loss. This elegy for an American icon is Conspirare’s greatest undertaking yet.
