Conspirare is a Grammy-winning and internationally recognized choir with a reputation for “expanding the boundaries of choral performance” (Wall Street Journal). In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a young, gay student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten, tied to a fence and left to die. Approaching the 20th anniversary of his death, Conspirare’s Artistic Director Craig Hella Johnson composed Considering Matthew Shepard, which earned a 2017 Grammy nomination and a standing ovation at Boston Symphony Hall, and features nearly 30 singers and a chamber ensemble. Johnson weaves together a wide variety of soulful and poetic texts in creating a performance that the Washington Post praised by saying, “[It] demonstrates music’s capacity to encompass, transform and transcend tragedy.” Audiences describe this work as “brilliant,” “innovative,” and “gripping.”
