"Considering Matthew Shepard" - Laramie

"Considering Matthew Shepard" - Laramie

Cheyenne Chamber Singers is honored to bring this Wyoming Story to Cheyenne during this 25th year since the events unfolded. This three-part fusion oratorio speaks with a fresh and bold voice, incorporating a variety of musical styles seamlessly woven into a unified whole. The music incorporates a wide range of poetic and soulful texts by poets including Hildegard of Bingen, Lesléa Newman, Michael Dennis Browne, and Rumi. Passages from Matt’s personal journal, interviews and writings from his parents Judy and Dennis Shepard, newspaper reports, and additional texts by Johnson and Browne are poignantly appointed throughout the work.
