Join W&L in the Virginia premiere of Considering Matthew Shepard, one of the most important and meaningful recent works of art. Anchored by the University Singers in the highlighted choir role, the performance features both professional and student soloists, instrumentalists, and narrators.
This multimedia fusion oratorio is a heart-wrenching musical telling of the tragic story and aftermath of the kidnapping, torture, and death of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming in 1998. From the Washington Post: "Considering Matthew Shepard demonstrates music's capacity to encompass, transform and transcend tragedy. Powerfully cathartic, it leads us from horror and grief to a higher understanding of the human condition, enabling us to endure."
Prior to the run of the Bentley production, W&L will bring this important story to venues and schools across the United States.
