Gay Men's Chorus of Charlotte, Women's Chorus of Charlotte: Considering Matthew Shepard

( Sun., Mar. 19, 2023 )

First United Methodist Church, 501 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28202


Join the Gay Men's Chorus of Charlotte and the Women's Chorus of Charlotte as we combine to present Considering Matthew Shepard. It's a story that is beautiful, sometimes hard to hear, and inspiring. If we listen and are open, we have the opportunity to shift our perspectives and open our hearts.  Twenty-five years ago, on the night of October 6, 1998, a 21-year-old gay man, Matthew Shepard, was tied to a fence, savagely beaten, and left to die. Taking us on a deeply meaningful and transformative journey in telling Matt's story, composer Craig Hella Johnson has drawn text from news coverage, from the words of Matt's mother and father, and from Matt's own words.



Through artistic excellence, education, and engagement, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Charlotte endeavors to create a society which values and respects its LGBTQ+ members.
