Considering Matthew Shepard
November 3, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
On Saturday November 3rd at 7:30pm, CONCORA and the UCONN Chamber Singers will be presenting an unforgettable music experience. They will perform Considering Matthew Shepard, a new choral work that tells the story of the young Wyoming college student who was brutally murdered in October, 1998. This choral piece uses a wide range of musical styles– from cowboy songs to Bach to gospel– to remind us of this tragic event, but also bind us together as we seek to serve all people, regardless of their background. The concert will be held in the sanctuary; $20 tickets at the door will benefit the Triangle Community Center, Fairfield County’s leading service provider for the LGBTQ community. Please spread the word among your friends outside of St John’s so we can pack the house– this powerful work has been performed to great acclaim around the country.
