Music Worcester presents a benefit concert of Considering Matthew Shepard, featuring the professional chorus CONCORA and the UConn Chamber Singers under the direction of both Jaime Spillane Chris Shephard. Cantor Mark sings with CONCORA and will be a featured soloist at this performance.
This performance, commemorating the 20th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death, will bring together four Worcester-based non-profits serving the LGBTQ+ communities of Central MA and beyond: Worcester Pride, Safe Homes, LGBT Asylum Task Force, and AIDS Project Worcester.
With movements ranging from chant to Gospel, and texts ranging from excerpts of Matthew Shepard’s own journals to love poetry across the centuries, Considering Matthew Shepard at Mechanics Hall will serve as a singular occasion to remember Matthew Shepard’s story
